The 6-wheeled rover fixed within the lander will get detached and move on the lunar surface. The rover has been designed in such a way that it will have power to spend a lunar day or 14 Earth days on the moon’s surface and walk up to 150-200 km. It will do several experiments and on-site chemical analysis of the surface. - said Dr. K Sivan, ISRO’s Chairman.The ISRO mission's Rover will start sending data and images back to the Earth via the orbiter within 15 minutes of its landing, and this will be used to analyze the lunar soil. According to ISRO, “The payloads will collect scientific information on lunar topography, mineralogy, elemental abundance, lunar exosphere and signatures of hydroxyl and water-ice.” Along with the Rover, the orbiter will also capture images of the moon and perform the function of remote sensing on the moon. The Rover will enter the sleep mode after spending 14 Earth days on the moon. It is, however, expected that the Rover will get alive when the part of the moon where the Rover will land, receives sunlight, and its solar cells will get re-charged.
