After the success of the Chandrayaan 3 mission on the Moon, ISRO had to deactivate the mission for 14 days because of the night on the south pole of the moon, which remained for 14 days.
ISRO Trying Awakening Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover
But now, as the night has been gone, ISRO is all set to make its efforts to reactivate its mission again and start its communication with the Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover, which ran over solar power. The lander and the rover had been put to sleep on 04 September and 02 September, respectively. But now, as the Sun shines again on the moon, ISRO is trying to revive its Lander and the Rover, and if it is successful, they can further go with the scientific experiments on the moon, which will be a bonus point.
Nilesh Desai, who is the director of the Space Applications Centre of Indian Space Research Organisation, has told that they had to shut down both their lander and the rover because there would not be any sun and the temperature was about to go as low as minus 120-200 degree celsius but as sun starts shining again from 20 September 2023 and with the hope that all the solar panel will be charged fully by 22 September 2023, The team is hoping to receive its Chandrayaan Mission again.
