Chandrayaan-3, India's lunar mission, successfully landed on the Moon's surface on August 23.

Vikram lander and Pragyan rover conducted in-situ experiments for 14 Earth days.

The explorers were put in sleep mode on September 4, with plans to wake up around September 22.

Pragyan rover's sleep mode was synchronized with the lunar sunset.

All experiment data was transmitted to Earth via the Vikram lander.

Vikram and Pragyan were designed for a 14 Earth day mission but may awaken on the next lunar sunrise.

If they don't wake up on September 22, they will remain as India's lunar ambassadors.

Vikram lander was put in sleep mode to survive the harsh lunar night of -200 degrees Celsius.

Pragyan rover is equipped with radioisotope heater units (RHU) for temperature control.
