ISRO shared the visual on its X page, a moment which many Indians were waiting to witness ever since Chandrayaan-3 commenced its mission last month.

"And here is how the Chandrayaan-3 Rover ramped down from the Lander to the Lunar surface." ISRO wrote on X.

Chandrayaan-3 lander Vikram captured the images and a video of its ramp when the Pragyan rover moved down towards the Moon's surface.

In a game-changing feat in India's space exploration, the country's lunar mission, Chandrayaan-3, successfully soft-landed on the South Polar region of the moon on Wednesday as a nation of 1.4 billion people erupted in joy and pride ending an anxious wait for the moment.
