Chandrayaan-3 Mission — Computer-Generated Images of Earth Captured From Moon Surface Circulated as Real

Just a few days ago, the internet witnessed an outbreak of activity surrounding stunning images supposedly depicting Earth as seen from the surface of the Moon. These images, purportedly captured by Chandrayaan-3’s Vikram Lander, created a buzz across social media platforms. However, it is crucial to clarify that these images are not connected with Chandrayaan-3 but from AI-generated. Instead, they are computer-generated renderings circulating under the false pretense of being genuine.

These misleading images gained traction when they were shared on various online platforms, with claims that they were actual photographs sent back by Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-3. These images were shared with the intent to mislead and manipulate public perception. Moreover, these images were also shared by a few accounts, such as @PratikVoiceObc and @BushraHena to target a particular community for their belief. It is essential to clarify that these AI-generated are entirely fabricated and not a product of the Chandrayaan-3 mission.

The Reality Behind the Images

These images were created using artificial intelligence and are far from actual photographs of Earth from the Moon’s surface. Media outlets such as WION [archive] published images to showcase how AI technology could simulate such moments before the actual landing of Chandrayaan-3’s Lander Vikram, which occurred on August 23, 2023, at 18:04 IST.

ISRO’s Official Statement

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) didn’t respond to any fake misleading claims. Instead, their official Twitter handle released a real picture captured by the Vikram lander from the lunar surface.

Conclusion

In summary, the recent circulation of AI-generated images falsely attributed to Chandrayaan-3’s Vikram Lander is an example of misinformation. These images were never captured by the spacecraft and are purely the result of artificial intelligence rendering. You can refer to the findings of this inquiry in the Twitter thread embedded below.


Claim
: Images circulate online suggesting that these images of Earth from the Moon’s surface were taken by Chandrayaan-3’s Vikram Lander.
