How Chandrayaan-3 rover will leave Ashoka Emblem imprint on Moon surface

India on Wednesday made history as the Indian Space Research Organisation’s ambitious third Moon mission Chandrayaan-3 successfully touched down on the lunar surface.

The Lunar Module comprising the lander (Vikram) and the 26 kg rover (Pragyan), made the soft landing near the south polar region of the Moon on Wednesday evening.

India’s third Moon mission Chandrayaan-3 touched down on the lunar south pole at 6.04 pm after a flawless 41-day voyage.

The rover Pragyan will now leave the lander module.

It will descend from the lander’s belly onto the Moon’s surface using one of its side panels which will act as a ramp.

As per The Week, the wheels of Pragyan have been imprinted with the ISRO logo and the national emblem depicting the Lion Capital of Ashoka at Sarnath.
