The temperature at the Moon’s south pole dropped to minus 10 degrees Celsius!

India’s Chandrayaan-3 lander Vikram has made a successful landing on the Moon’s south pole. Along with this, the first information came from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). On board Vikram was a system called “ChaSTE”, which measures the thermal conductivity and temperature of the Moon.

ISRO shared the information they obtained thanks to this system. It was stated that the temperature recorded 8 centimeters deep on the lunar surface dropped to minus 10 degrees Celsius. In addition, it was stated that an increase in temperature can be observed as it approaches the surface.

The temperature above the surface was recorded to be 50-60 degrees Celsius. Regarding this data, ISRO stated that this is the first time such a profile has been made for the south pole of the Moon. In the light of this shared information, it was said that it will enable scientists to “understand the thermal behavior of the lunar surface”.

With the successful landing of the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft, India became the fourth country to land on the Moon after the US, Russia and China. It was the first country to land near the south pole of the Moon. One of the most important goals of the Chandrayaan-3 mission was to show that it could walk on the lunar surface.

Another purpose was to make scientific observations. This purpose is still ongoing. The lander and the rover are well-equipped for scientific observations. As a result of this process, they will send back the information they have obtained about the lunar atmosphere, soil structure and minerals. As a result of the observations, it will be possible to have a lot of information about the unexplored south pole of the Moon.
