Chandrayaan-3's Vikram lander performing hop experiment on the Moon was unplanned and went beyond the mission's objectives, Project Director P Veeramuthuvel told India Today. Chandrayaan-3 clocked a world first by touching down near the Moon's south pole on August 23. Both the Vikram lander and Pragyan rover gathered a wealth of data during their 14-day research period on the lunar surface, added Veeramuthuvel.
