  • Chandrayaan2 all set to enter Moon’s orbit on Aug 20: ISRO

ISRO Chairman, K Sivan said that the Chandrayaan-2 will face a tough phase while entering the moon's orbit on Tuesday.

In a make-or-break effort, the Indian space agency ISRO will manoeuvre the spacecraft into the lunar orbit between 8:30 to 9:30 am on Tuesday.

Currently, the Chandrayaan 2 composite is on a lunar transfer trajectory.

We will provide a critical velocity to Chandrayaan-2: reduce its velocity and change its direction so that it enters Moon's orbit.

Clemson ranked No. 1 preseason in AP Poll for first time
This also represents the 61st time that Oklahoma has appeared in the preseason AP poll, second most behind Ohio State (66 times). MI was not, however, the highest rated team from the Big Ten this year , with Ohio State clocking in two spots higher at No. 5.

This is one of the most tricky operations in the mission because if the satellite approaches the Moon at a higher-than-expected velocity it will bounce off it and get lost in deep space. I wanted to let everyone back home know that it has been an fantastic journey for me so far and I am on course to land on the lunar south polar region on 7th September. Over the past few days, the spacecraft successfully broke away from Earth's orbit and started out on its 3,84,000-kilometre journey to the moon. "If the couple have to meet, then the precision and accuracy is of utmost importance".

In a special message, the premier space agency tweeted that the journey of the spacecraft which was launched from Sriharikota on July 22 has been fantastic so far.

Without this move, the spacecraft will go out of the lunar ambit and travel into an unknown and unwanted space realm, according to experts who are conversant with the first Indian lunar orbiter mission, Chandrayaan-1 in 2008. So far, the moves have been similar to Chandrayaan-1. The last nation to attempt a soft landing on the Moon, Israel, failed in its earlier this year. This will allow the spacecraft to come under the influence of the moon's orbit. While the orbiter will continue to revolve around the moon, Vikram will undertake two further orbit manoeuvres, before it begins a powered descent into the lunar surface. The distance of passing over the lunar poles is about 100 km from Moon's surface.

The Chandrayaan 2 mission aims to expand the knowledge about the Moon, leading to a better understanding of its origin and evolution.
