Proving the country’s great success, India’s second moon mission Chandrayaan-2 entered the moon’s orbit on 20 August. ISRO said that on September 2, the lander would break away from the ‘Vikram’ orbiter and on September 7, it would make a ‘soft landing’ in the South Pole region of the moon.
After landing on the lunar surface of the lander, a rover named ‘Pragyan’ will come out from within it and will carry out its scientific experiments on the lunar surface by walking on its six wheels. ISRO scientists say that ‘soft landing’ on the moon is the most complex phase of lunar mission-2. The space agency said that the condition of the spacecraft is constantly being monitored.
