The Pragyan rover is equipped with a variety of instruments, including a laser-induced spectroscope, a camera, and a magnetometer. These instruments will allow the rover to study the composition of the lunar surface, the atmosphere of the moon, and the presence of water ice.

The successful deployment of the Pragyan rover is a major milestone for the Chandrayaan-3 mission. The mission is a joint project between the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and the European Space Agency (ESA).

The Chandrayaan-3 mission is the second attempt by India to land a spacecraft on the moon. The first attempt, in 2019, was unsuccessful. However, the success of the Pragyan rover shows that India is now a major player in the field of lunar exploration.
