Chandrayaan-2 completes 4th orbit-raising manoeuvre

Aug 02, 2019 19:19 IST

ISRO has confirmed that Chandrayaan-2 has successfully completed its fourth orbit-raising manoeuvre on Friday afternoon. An orbit-raising movement essentially puts the spacecraft in a higher orbit, and Chandrayaan 2 will conduct its 5th such manoeuvre on the 6th of August. Launched on 22nd of July, the Chandrayaan-2 is expected to reach the moon by August 20. Roughly around the 6th of September, Chandrayaan 2's lander 'Vikram' will attempt to soft-land on the lunar surface.
