The Sun set again 5 October at the Shiv Shakti area on the moon, practically ending all hopes of Vikram and Pragyan ever waking up, reports @ISROSpaceflight on message service X.

Indian Space Research Organisation's Chandrayaan-3 mission has still been a success: during the pre-planned 14 day mission, Vikram lander and its small Pragyan rover made the first ever in-situ measurements of the elemental composition of Lunar rocks and regolith, sub-surface temperatures, near surface plasma and seismic activity from the Lunar south polar region.

In addition, Vikram performed a successful hop test, becoming only the second Lunar lander to ever do so.
