NEW-DELHI: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has released a new video showcasing the Pragyan rover of Chandrayaan-3 in action. The video captures the Pragyan rover traversing the lunar terrain at the South Pole, specifically around the 'Shiv Shakti' point. This development follows ISRO's announcement a day prior that the rover had successfully covered a distance of approximately eight meters on the moon's surface and its instruments were operational.
In the latest 40-second video, ISRO showcases the Pragyan rover gracefully navigating the unique landscape of the Moon's South Pole. The rover's mission is to unravel the enigmatic mysteries of this lunar region.
