ISRO puts Chandrayaan-3 rover in sleep mode to survive lunar night

Posted by in category: space

The lander and the rover, which landed on the Moon on August 23, were designed to operate for only one lunar day.

As the lunar day draws to a close, ISRO has decided to put its Chandrayaan-3 rover Pragyan in sleep mode to conserve its battery and protect it from the extreme cold of the lunar night. The rover, which has completed its assigned tasks, is now parked safely and has transmitted the data collected by its payloads to the lander, which in turn relays it to Earth.
