The pivotal components of Chandrayaan-3 consist of the Lander and the Rover, both equipped with scientific instruments for conducting experiments on the lunar surface.

Such an accomplishment not only carries scientific importance but also resonates across various domains including Science, Engineering, Technology, and Industry. It serves as a testament to India’s remarkable progress in the realm of space exploration and showcases the nation’s dedication to advancing its capabilities on the global stage.
