Chandrayaan-2 to begin its journey towards moon early tomorrow

  • “On August 20 we will be reaching the moon,” K Sivan said

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will undertake on August 14 the crucial process of trans-lunar injection to move Chandrayaan-2 from earth's orbit towards the moon, its Chairman K Sivan said on Monday.

"On 14 August early morning, around 3:30, we are going to have a manoeuvre called a trans-lunar injection, through this manoeuvre, Chandrayaan-2 will leave earth and move towards the moon".

Launching the spacecraft to beyond the Earth's orbit and insert it on an orbit that will take it to Moon's orbit is extremely critical because without the right timings Chandrayaan-2 could miss intersection of the Moon's orbit and could be lost forever, experts say. "The Chandrayaan-2 composite body is now revolving around the earth", said Sivan.

K Sivan stated that the spacecraft will be reaching the moon's orbit on August 20 and it will be landing on the moon's surface on September 7 by performing a series of maneuvers. Chandrayaan 2 seeks to explore the far side of the Moon, a feat no other country has achieved yet.

Once it's in lunar orbit 100 kilometres above the surface, the spacecraft will send a lander on a controlled descent to the surface.

The orbiter will continue its mission for a year. The announcement of the Gaganyaan project was first made previous year by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Independence Day when he said "a son or daughter of India will go to space" by 2022.
