Chandrayaan 2 has taken one more step closer to the Moon

India’s Chandrayaan 2 has taken another step to reach to its destination the Moon. The spacecraft performed its fifth and final orbit-raising manoeuvre in this week only as per the planning. With this step, the spacecraft has become more near to the moon. The Chandrayaan 2 is a significant achievement for ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation), and the organization must be celebrating the step that the spacecraft has taken successfully.

The spacecraft is progressing in its journey from Earth to Moon as per the planning. The previous manoeuvre and fourth manoeuvre it has performed on August 2, and next manoeuvre has also performed by Chandrayaan 2 as per the schedule.

ISRO informed the nation about the latest progress by the Chandrayaan 2 through twitter. ISRO tweeted, “Fifth earthbound orbit-raising maneuver for #Chandrayaan2 spacecraft has been performed today (August 6, 2019) at 1504 hrs (IST) as planned.” ISRO also said that all the spacecraft parameters were normal. Now the next move of Chandrayaan 2 will be the Trans Lunar Insertion (TLI) which is scheduled for the afternoon of 14 August at 3.00 pm – 4.00 pm IST.

After this latest move by the Chandrayaan two now the crucial steps for the spacecraft will be a soft landing that will happen on 7 September 2019 as per the ISRO’s schedule and to open Vikram’s hatch for the Pragyan rover to take its first few rolls onto soil four hours later.

Chandrayaan 2 is India’s second mission to the Moon before this India sent Chandrayaan 1 in 2008, but this mission is crucial and important too as the spacecraft will land on the south pole of the Moon. The spacecraft was launched on 22 July 2019 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh.  A soft landing of Chandrayaan 2 on the moon will make India the 4th country to reach to the moon after USSR, the USA, and China.
