ISRO, on Tuesday, announced that India’s most awaited space mission Chandrayaan 2 has finally entered the Moon orbit. Within a month it will have a soft landing on the southern part of Moon which will embrace India with one more accomplishment.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) issued a statement which stated, “the Lunar Orbit Insertion or LOI maneuver was completed successfully using the onboard propulsion system. a series of orbit maneuvers will be performed on Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft to enable it to enter its final orbit passing over the lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from the Moon’s surface.”
Further added, “Subsequently, the lander will separate from the Orbiter and enters into a 100 km X 30 km orbit around the Moon. Then, it will perform a series of complex braking maneuvers to soft-land in the South polar region of the Moon on September 7, 2019.”
