Chandrayaan-2 to reach moon in a week

"Since its launch on July 22, 2019, by GSLV MkIII-M1 vehicle, all systems onboard Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft are performing normal", officials added.

On Wednesday. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) announced that Chandrayaan-2 has successfully completed the fifth and last Earth-bound orbit at 2:21 AM.

Then, the spacecraft will have four-orbit manoeuvres around the moon and finally enter the final orbit, closest to the moon's surface - at a distance of about 100 km. The final orbit raising manoeuvre of Chandrayaan-2 was successfully carried out at 2.21 am.

Chandrayaan-2 will approach Moon on August 20, 2019 and the spacecraft's liquid engine will be fired again to insert the spacecraft into a lunar orbit. And, as was first reported by TOI, if everything goes as per plans, .Chandrayaan-2 may go around Moon for at least one additional year - the Indian space agency initially estimated a one-year lifespan for the orbiter.

The spacecraft's orbit was "progressively increased five times" between July 23 and August 6 after India's second lunar mission was launched on July 22 from its launch pad in Andhra Pradesh's Sriharikota on July 22. According to ISRO, at around 3.30 on Wednesday morning we made a significant change, which is called trans-lunar injection.

Those who are waiting endlessly for the lander, Vikram's soft landing on the Moon, the National Geographic is planning to stream a live show on September 7.

The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft is expected to reach the moon's orbit on August 20.

"Trans Lunar Insertion (TLI) manoeuvre was performed today (August 14, 2019) at 0221 hrs IST as planned".

Chandrayaan-2 is the country's second mission to the moon.

The rover carries two payloads to enhance the understanding of the lunar surface.

Following the landing, the rover will roll out from the lander and carry out experiments on the lunar surface for a period of one lunar day, which is equal to 14 earth days. This is the main goal of the lunar transfer phase of the mission.

According to ISRO, Chandrayaan-2 is the most challenging mission ever attempted by the space agency. No country has reached this part of the moon so far.
