Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman K Sivan on Tuesday addressed the media on Lunar Orbit Insertion of Chandrayaan 2. He said, “Chandrayaan 2 mission crossed a major milestone on Tuesday, the precise lunar orbit insertion maneuver was carried out at 9 am for about 30 minutes and Chandrayaan 2 was precisely inserted in the defined orbit”. Likewise, he said, “Next major event will happen on 2nd September when the lander will be separated from the orbiter. On 3rd September we will have a small maneuver for about 3 seconds to ensure that the systems of the lander are running normally.”
Furthermore, ISRO Chairman K Sivan said, “On 7th September, at 1:55 am lander will land on the moon.” Chandrayaan 2 was launched on July 22 from GSLVMkIII-M1 from Sriharikota. Likewise, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was extremely proud on the successful launching of Chandrayaan 2. He said, “Special moments that will be etched in the annals of our glorious history! The launch of Chandrayaan 2 illustrates the prowess of our scientists and the determination of 130 crore Indians to scale new frontiers of science. Every Indian is immensely proud today!”
Likewise, PM Modi said, “Indian at heart, Indian in spirit! What would make every Indian overjoyed is the fact that Chandrayaan 2 is a fully indigenous mission! It will have an Orbiter for remote sensing the Moon and also a Lander-Rover module for analysis of the lunar surface.” “Chandrayaan 2 is unique because it will explore and perform studies on the south pole region of lunar terrain which is not explored and sampled by any past mission. This mission will offer new knowledge about the Moon”, added PM Modi.
