The thermal probe of the Lander Vikram recorded how the temperature changes on the surface of the moon and in the depths near the surface. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said the Lunar Surface Thermophysical Experiment measures the temperature profile of the upper soil of the moon around the pole to understand the behavior of the lunar surface. Which is capable of reaching a depth of 10 cm below the surface. There are 10 individual temperature sensors in the testing device.
The graph shows the variation in lunar surface temperature at different depths, as recorded during the course of the probe. This is the first profile of the moon’s south pole. Detailed observation is in progress.
What is the temperature of the lunar surface at the moon’s south pole, and how does it vary? The world has had no information about this until now. But the Vikram lander of Chandrayaan 3, sent by India, visited the lunar surface and assessed the temperature of the lunar soil throughout the day.
