Successfully landing on the lunar surface, Chandrayaan-3 of India spent nearly a week conducting exploration and gathering fresh data. The Vikram lander, a robotic device, worked on the Moon, transmitting new information back to Earth.
Furthermore, the Vikram lander captured records of natural lunar tremors and seismic activities. On Thursday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) shared this information through social media.
ISRO indicated that they had equipped the Vikram lander with instruments capable of recording seismic activity linked to lunar quakes and geological shifts.
This equipment detected seismic movements on the lunar surface on Thursday. It successfully documented various types of motions on the Moon, encompassing those originating from geological activities.
To monitor lunar seismic events, the first Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS)-based instrument for lunar seismic activity was placed on the rover and other payloads positioned on the Moon’s surface.
Vikram registered the lunar quake on August 26, which was deemed natural. Nevertheless, ISRO clarified that further investigations are underway.
As per ISRO’s statement, the Lunar Seismic Activity Experiment (LSAE) aims to gauge the effects and causes of lunar seismic activities on Earth’s surface and evaluate artificial events.
Before this, Isro had conducted investigations concerning plasma particles at the Moon’s southern pole and shared information derived from that research.
