Chandrayaan-3’s Lunar Dilemma! Has Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover Gone Silent Forever on Moon?

As attempts to re-establish contact with the Vikram lander and Pragyan rover have been fruitless, the Chandrayaan-3 mission of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is currently in doubt.


Chandrayaan-3: Concerns have been raised concerning the operational state of the Chandrayaan-3 mission’s Vikram lander and Pragyan rover after the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) was unable to establish connection with them. The lunar explorers, who landed on the unknown southern polar area of the moon on August 23 after a 40-day voyage through space, have not sent any signals despite numerous attempts.

Efforts to Reawaken Chandrayaan-3’s Lander and Rover

After successfully completing their primary responsibilities, the Vikram lander and Pragyan rover were sent into sleep mode on September 2. From the Shiv Shakti Point, the rover had travelled more than 100 metres across the lunar surface, verifying the presence of oxygen, iron, and other elements. Despite having great hopes, Isro has been unable to restore the system since that time. Up until the next lunar sunset on September 30, Isro will keep trying to get in touch with the lander and rover. The organisation is still optimistic that the lander and rover will restart when the sun rises on Shivshakti Point, where they are currently parked. It is currently unknown when communication will begin with the Chandrayaan-3 sensors.

Chandrayaan-3’s Lander and Rover’s Fate Hangs in the Balance

“We will continue to ping it. But as of now, there has been no communication,” according to reliable sources who spoke to IndiaToday.in under the condition of anonymity. Given the hostile lunar environment over the lengthy night, the likelihood of a revival had always been remote. Nilesh M. Desai, Director of the Space Applications Centre (SAC), stated that the lander and rover would automatically restart. He had previously stated that the signal would arrive as soon as the lander and rover’s solar panels had had a chance to charge up owing to the sunrise, which took place on the lunar surface on September 22. But thus far, no signals have been picked up. There is a 50/50 probability that the electronics will survive the extreme cold. If not, Desai said, the expedition has already succeeded in its goals.

Chandrayaan-3’s Historic Mission Awaits Resurrection

The lander and rover will continue their research on the moon’s surface if they are revived. Despite Vikram and Pragyan’s current silence, the Chandrayaan-3 mission has already contributed to history. Making important advancements in lunar exploration, it was India’s first soft landing in the South Polar region of the moon. The globe waits impatiently in anticipation of the success of Isro’s efforts to reestablish contact with these moon diplomats.
