The statement also mentioned that the APXS and LIBS payloads have been turned off, and data from these instruments is being transmitted to Earth through the Lander.

As of the latest update, the rover’s battery is fully charged, and its solar panel is carefully oriented to capture sunlight during the upcoming lunar sunrise, anticipated on September 22, 2023.

“The receiver remains active, and we are hopeful for a successful reawakening when the time comes for another set of assignments. Should this not occur, Pragyaan will continue to stand proudly as India’s lunar ambassador,” ISRO further said.
