BENGALURU: Isro on Tuesday released an anaglyph — a simple visualisation of an object or terrain in three dimensions (3D) from stereo or multi-view images — showing Chandrayaan-3 lander Vikram on the lunar surface.
Red and cyan glasses needed to view 3D effect: Isro
The anaglyph released by Isro was created using the navigation camera stereo images, which consist of both a left and right image. Isro said. The navigation camera was onboard Pragyan, the rover.
“In this three-channel image, the left image is positioned in the red channel, while the right image is placed in the blue and green channels (creating cyan). The difference in perspective between these two images results in the stereo effect, which gives the visual impression of three dimensions. Red & Cyan glasses are recommended for viewing in 3D,” Isro said.
Earlier in the day, scientists from Isro Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (Istrac) successfully implemented the second Earth-bound manoeuvre of Aditya-L1 spacecraft.
“Istrac/Isro ground stations at Mauritius, Bengaluru and Port Blair tracked the satellite during this operation. The new orbit attained is 282km x 40,225km,” Isro said, adding that the next manoeuvre — third of the five Earth-bound manoeuvres scheduled — is scheduled for 2.30am on September 10.
On Sunday (September 3), a day after Aditya-L1 was launched on a PSLV from Sriharikota, Isro had completed the first Earth-bound manoeuvre and put the spacecraft in an orbit of 245km x 22,459km,.
Aditya-L1 is a satellite dedicated to the comprehensive study of the Sun. It has seven distinct payloads — five by Isro and two by academic institutions in collaboration with Isro — developed indigenously
