Chandrayaan-2 successfully reached lunar orbit on Tuesday. This was recently announced by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). Chandrayaan-2 was successfully launched into lunar orbit at 9:02 a.m. on Tuesday, ISRO said. The space agency said all the instruments on Chandrayaan-2 were working properly.
“It took 1,738 seconds to send Chandrayaan-2 into lunar orbit,” ISRO said.
The ISRO post states, “In this, work will be done on a number of orbits following Chandrayaan 2, through which the spacecraft will reach its final orbit at a distance of 100 km from the lunar surface.” “Later, the landing part will be separated from the orbit, and will enter a 100 x 30 km orbit around the moon. The spacecraft will reach the moon’s south pole on September 7, 2019,” they said.
Eventually Chandrayaan-2 will orbit 100 km above the surface of the Moon’s pole. The spacecraft will enter the Moon’s southern mete on November 7, 2019.
ISRO is checking the health of Chandrayaan-2 at every moment. The space agency is monitoring the spacecraft from Bangalore through deep space network antennas.
Dr. Annadurai, former director of ISRO’s satellite center, said of the ongoing mission, “It’s a bit like that. That is, a woman dancing at a speed of about 3,600 kilometers per hour, a gentleman holding a rose in her hand (this speed is about five times the speed of an airplane), again not close to home, 3.84 million kilometers away. If the couple is to be reunited, they must be very loyal and accurate. “
Chandrayaan 2 was launched from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on 22 July. The launch was successful on the second attempt. The first launch was canceled one hour before launch due to a technical error.
The cost of this mission is Rs 1,000 crore, which is much less than the cost of other countries.
