BENGALURU: The Indian Space Research Organisation has revealed 3D photos of the lunar surface just one day after the Vikram lander was put to sleep. An ‘Anaglyph’ composite of two photos taken by the Pragyaan rover’s NavCam Stereo was used to make the image. 

Anaglyph is a straightforward method of representing an item or landscape in three dimensions using stereo or multiple-view photographs. On Tuesday, ISRO announced on platform X that the anaglyph seen below was produced using NavCam Stereo Images, which are made up of a left and right image taken on the Pragyan Rover.

The red channel is shown on the left in this view of the moon, while the green and blue channels are shown on the right. The resultant mix creates a multifaceted portrait of Vikram. The NavCam is used to have a better understanding of the lunar landscape so that craters and mounds may be avoided.

The right picture is positioned in the blue and green channels (producing cyan) in this three-channel image, while the left image is in the red channel, according to ISRO. The stereo effect, which creates the illusion of three dimensions, is caused by the different perspectives in these two photographs. 

To examine the image in 3D, scientists also advised donning red and blue spectacles.The Space Applications Centre (SAC) handled the data processing while ISRO’s Laboratory for Electro-Optics Systems (LEOS) created the NavCam on the rover.
