he history-making Chandrayaan-3 mission, which landed on the lunar surface two days ago, has deployed its small, six-wheeled rover on an exploratory expedition to better understand the composition of the moon's soil. The Indian Space Research Organization, or ISRO, said in a social media post that the rover, which rode to the lunar surface tucked inside the lander, successfully exited the spacecraft on Thursday by rolling down a small ramp. The agency also released a short video clip from the lander, called Vikram, showing the ramp deploying and the rover making its careful exit. The space agency also said Friday that the rover, named Pragyan or "wisdom" in Sanskrit, traveled 8 meters (26 feet), and both of its scientific instruments were functioning.
