The Indian Space Research Organization ISRO shared the latest news on how the Chandrayaan-3 mission to explore the Moon is progressing. This time, ISRO shared a video showing the maneuvers of the Pragyan rover (“knowledge”, “wisdom”) on the surface of the Earth’s natural satellite.

On ISRO’s Twitter blog, the mission team says:

Chandrayaan 3 mission: The rover turns to look for a safe route. The rotation was captured by the lander’s camera. It feels as if a child is playfully frolicking in the courtyards of Chandamama while the mother watches affectionately. Is not it?

Chandrayaan-3 is ISRO’s third lunar exploration station and India’s second attempt at a soft landing on the lunar surface. The first attempt was Chandrayaan-2 almost four years ago, but then the lander and rover crashed into the Moon due to a software glitch. Chandrayaan-3 successfully made a soft landing on August 23, 2023. On August 24, the journey of the Pragyan rover on the Moon began. It is planned that the lunar rover will work on the surface of the Earth’s natural satellite for one lunar day (14 Earth days).
