Chandrayaan 2 Makes It To Moon's Orbit Awaiting Landing

It has been reported that the budget of ISRO is less than 20 times that of USA's NASA. The Indian Space Branch ISRO is periodically sharing updates with people. The duration of the manoeuvre was 1228 seconds and the orbit achieved was 118 km x 4412 km. More and more people in India want to know about this mission. Now Chandrayaan 2 has taken some awesome pictures of both Moon and Earth from space. Chandrayaan 2 sent the first pictures of the earth in the first week of August.

ISRO has shared photos of Prithvi taken from Chandrayaan 2's Vikram Lander LI4 camera on 3 August 2019 in several tweets. In these photos the earth can be seen in different colors.

Chandrayaan-2, a three-module spacecraft comprising an orbiter, lander and rover, which was launched on July 22, will land on the moon on September 7.

ISRO said in July that the Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft is in good health and is moving in the right direction.

The image, taken at an altitude of 2650 kilometres from the moon's surface was captured around 4.33pm EAT according to ISRO's website.

ISRO stated that this image has been taken from a height of 2650km on 21 August. Then, it will perform a series of complex braking manoeuvres to soft-land in the South polar region of the Moon on September 7, 2019. The entire nation is eyeing this low-priced program of the country. This orbit will pass over the lunar poles, one of which will be the landing site for Vikram.

This event is an essential achievement as India has the possibility to become the fourth country (alongside the United States of America, the Soviet Union, and China) in the world to undergo a soft landing on the Moon.
