BENGALURU: The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) on Saturday said two of the three Chandrayaan-3 mission objectives have been achieved while the third — in-situ scientific experiments — is underway.

The national space agency also said all the payloads of Chandrayaan-3 mission are performing normally.

“Chandrayaan-3 Mission: Of the 3 mission objectives, demonstration of a safe and soft landing on the lunar surface is accomplished. Demonstration of Rover roving on the moon is accomplished. Conducting in-situ scientific experiments is underway. All payloads are performing normally,” Isro said on X', formerly known as Twitter.

On Saturday, Isro on its X (formerly Twitter) handle posted a video of the rover taking a left turn with the message: “Pragyaan rover roams around the Shiv Shakti Point in pursuit of lunar secrets at the South Pole.

The space agency was expected to post pictures of the lunar lander Vikram taken by the camera on board Pragyaan.
