The Indian space agency has done some hard work on the ground so that its moon lander — Vikram — can soft-land safely and rover — Pragyaan — can move around, said a senior retired official.

“The surface of the earth and that of the moon are entirely different. So we had to create an artificial moon surface and test our rover and lander,” M. Annadurai, who retired as Director, U.R. Rao Satellite Centre (URSC), formerly ISRO Satellite Centre told IANS.
