Bengaluru: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) released images on Monday of the Vikram lander scouting for a landing site on the Moon.

Isro’s ambitious lunar mission, Chandrayaan-3, captured the images using the Lander Hazard Detection and Avoidance Camera (LPDC) ahead of its first historic landing.

Isro said on X post, “Here are the images of the Lunar far side area captured by the Lander Hazard Detection and Avoidance Camera. This camera that assists in locating a safe landing area — without boulders or deep trenches — during the descent is developed at SAC/ISRO.”

The Chandrayaan-3 is scheduled to land on the south pole of the Moon on August 23.
