“Officials announced today, on September 23, 2023, at 8:33:24 AM IST, that Chandrayaan-3’s rover and lander modules were deliberately placed in a dormant state following a series of experiments conducted on the moon between August 23 and September 4. This strategic move was made to ensure their survival in the extremely harsh conditions of the moon’s south pole, where frigid temperatures prevail.”

“On the same date and time, Nilesh M Desai, Director of the Space Application s Centre (SAC), expressed a ’50-50 per cent chance of revival’ for Chandrayaan-3. Desai stated that if the electronic components endure the severe cold, they will transmit signals; otherwise, the mission has already accomplished its objectives.”

“Also on September 23, 2023, at 8:21:19 AM IST, tensions escalated between India and Canada due to allegations made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau regarding potential Indian involvement in the killing of Khalistani extremist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in British Columbia on June 18. Nijjar had been designated as a terrorist by India in 2020. The situation is currently unfolding, and you can find the latest updates on the India-Canada dispute here.”

“Regarding Chandrayaan-3’s status, ISRO Chairman Madhavan Nair explained the process of ‘waking up’ the Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover, which had been in a deep sleep mode for nearly two weeks, experiencing temperatures as low as -150 degrees Celsius. Nair highlighted that the solar heat would gradually warm up the instruments and recharge the batteries. If these conditions are met successfully, there is a reasonable chance that the system will become operational once again.”

“Tapan Mishra, a former ISRO scientist, emphasized that the next crucial step for Chandrayaan-3 is to confirm the presence of water on the moon. He mentioned the presence of oxygen and the need to detect hydrogen as conclusive evidence of water, shedding light on the importance of this discovery for future lunar exploration.”

“Yesterday, ISRO reported that efforts to establish communication with the Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover are ongoing, with no signals received thus far. These efforts will persist as ISRO continues to work towards reconnecting with the dormant modules.”

“Lastly, Nilesh M Desai, Director of the Space Applications Centre (SAC), reiterated that the ‘revival’ of the lander and rover is an ‘automatic’ process and cannot be triggered from Earth. He emphasized that signals will be transmitted as the solar-powered lander and rover recharge due to the lunar sunrise, which occurred on September 22. As per ISRO’s statement, the organization is actively working to reestablish contact, and signals will be sent automatically when the conditions are favorable.”
