Chandrayaan-2 enters Lunar Transfer Trajectory

Chandrayaan-2 enters Lunar Transfer Trajectory

Chennai, Aug 14 (UNI) The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft,

launched from the SHAR Range on July 22, on Wednesday

successfully entered the Lunar Transfer Trajectory, for a

scheduled soft landing on the Moon's South Polar Region

on September seven.

ISRO sources said the final orbit raising manoeuvre of

Chandrayaan-2 was successfully carried out at 02:21 hrs

early this morning.

During this manoeuver, the spacecraft's liquid engine

was fired for about 1,203 seconds.

With this, Chandrayaan-2 entered the Lunar Transfer

Trajectory.

Earlier, the spacecraft’s orbit was progressively increased

five times from July 23 to August six.

The health of the spacecraft is being continuously monitored

from the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) at ISRO Telemetry,

Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru with

support from Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) antennas at

Byalalu, near Bengaluru.

Since its launch by GSLV MkIII-M1 vehicle, all systems onboard

Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft are performing normal.

Chandrayaan-2 will approach Moon on August 20 and the

spacecraft's liquid engine will be fired again to insert it into

a lunar orbit.

Following this, there will be further four orbit manoeuvers to

make the spacecraft enter into its final orbit passing over the

lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from the Moon’s

surface.
