Europa has an ocean hidden beneath a thick shell of ice and has long has been viewed as a potential habitat for life, alongside Mars and Saturn’s moon Enceladus.
The study revealed regions on the Moon's near side that have concentrations of radioactive elements unlike anywhere else on its surface that could explain its early stages.
In weeks to come, the lander and rover are tasked with infrared imaging of an unusual pit and surrounding soil near the landing site.
India had undertaken planetary missions to the Moon and Mars on a shoestring budget of around USD one billion compared to China's USD three billion and USD 25 billion of USA.
The colour and brightness of the sky appeared different in this image because of the presence of all the high-altitude dust in the Martian air right now.
