Chandrayaan-2 successfully completes its final earth-bound orbit-raising manoeuvre

@isro
In yet another significant development in its journey towards the Moon, India’s lunar probe Chandrayaan-2 has successfully completed its fifth and final earth-bound orbit-raising manoeuvre today.

The national space agency ISRO has said in a tweet, the operation began at 15:04 hours, by firing the engine onboard the aircraft and went on for 17 minutes and 21 seconds.

The manoeuvre led the spacecraft to reach an orbit of substantial apogee, that is the farthest point from the Earth, at nearly one lakh-forty three thousand kilometres. ISRO said, all the spacecraft parameters are normal.

The next important move would be to inject Chandrayaan-2 in a trans-lunar path. It is scheduled to be held early in the morning on the 14th of this month.

The country’s second lunar expedition to the Moon, Chandrayaan-2 is expected to reach an orbit around the Moon on the 20th of this month. It will have a touch down on the lunar South Pole on 7th September.
