The lunar South Pole, near which India’s Vikram made a historic soft-landing on August 23, is a beguiling area in terms of physical contours, stunning temperature differential and sheer visual splendor.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Wednesday shared an image of the site on the lunar surface where Vikram, the lander module of Chandrayaan-3, landed. Taking to social media platform X, formerly called Twitter, ISRO said, “Chandrayaan-3 Mission: The image captured by the Landing Imager Camera after the landing. It shows a portion of Chandrayaan-3’s landing site. Seen also is a leg and its accompanying shadow.”
