Chandrayaan-3 Latest News: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is trying to re-establish communication with Chandrayaan-3’s lander ‘Vikram’ and rover ‘Pragyan’. According to ISRO, they have not been successful in this endeavor yet. Didn’t get any ‘signal’ from Vikram or ‘Pragyan’. However, ISRO will continue its efforts. We tell you that after the successful landing on the lunar surface, the lander Vikram and rover Pragyan were put into sleep mode on September 4.
Why put it in sleeping mode? Chandrayaan-3’s lander ‘Vikram’ and rover ‘Pragyan’ had a mission of only 14 days. The sun shines on the moon for 14 days, i.e. it has daytime and 14 days of night. When the lander Vikram landed there, it was daytime. We tell you that both Vikram and Pragyan are powered by solar energy. This means that their solar panels will only be able to get electricity when it’s daytime on the moon.
As long as it was daytime on the moon, Vikram and Pragyan did their work. After that, on September 4, before nightfall, they were put into sleep mode.
Waking up from -253 degrees is not easy: According to ISRO, the night temperature on the moon drops to -130 degrees Celsius. Temperatures even reached minus 253 degrees in some areas. In such circumstances, it is no less than a miracle that Vikram and Pragyan’s batteries, electronic equipment and other items can withstand such extreme cold. But they specially prepared Vikram and Pragyan keeping in mind the harsh environment of night on the moon. So, it is expected that as the days progress they will start working again and India will get some more important information.
What will happen if Vikram and Pragyan do not wake up? According to ISRO, Chandrayaan-3’s rover Pragyan’s battery was fully charged before being put into sleep mode. The receivers of both the lander and the rover are also operational. Continuous efforts are also being made to establish communication. If this does not happen, Vikram and Pragyan will always be present on the lunar surface as India’s ambassadors. Both have already completed their mission. Waking up again will be some sort of bonus.
Can someone steal Vikram or Pragyan’s data? If Vikram and Pragyan don’t wake up again and lie on the surface of the moon, can any other country steal any information from them in the future? According to a BBC Hindi report, Andhra University physics professor P. If communication with the lander Vikram and the rover Pragyan is not re-established, both will end up as junk on the moon, Srinivas said. It has no meaning for anyone else and no information can be gained from it.
