Chandrayaan-2 set for final orbit-reducing manoeuvre today


The final round of orbit-reducing manoeuvre for Chandrayaan-2 will begin Sunday evening. The scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) are gearing up for the manoeuvre.

According to reports, task will be performed by firing the onboard propulsion system in the orbiter of Chandrayaan-2. After the manoeuvre the Chandrayaan-2 will reach a circular polar synchronous orbit around the moon at a distance of about a hundred kilometers.

Following the final round of orbit-reducing manoeuvre, the new path of the lunar mission will provide a favourable condition for separation of the Lander Vikram from the orbiter on Monday.

Meanwhile, the Lander carrying the rover is scheduled to touch the lunar South Police on 7th September.
