ISRO, on Tuesday, announced that India’s most ambitious space mission Chandrayaan 2 has finally entered the Moon orbit. Within a month it will have a soft landing on the southern part of Moon and it will be another big achievement of India.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) issued a statement which stated, “the Lunar Orbit Insertion or LOI maneuver was completed successfully using the onboard propulsion system. a series of orbit maneuvers will be performed on Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft to enable it to enter its final orbit passing over the lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from the Moon’s surface.”
It further added, “Subsequently, the lander will separate from the Orbiter and enters into a 100 km X 30 km orbit around the Moon. Then, it will perform a series of complex braking maneuvers to soft-land in the South polar region of the Moon on September 7, 2019.”
The moment this news was out Indians got excited and started pouring congratulatory messages for ISRO. Twitter is flooding with celebratory posts and here are some tweets which will make your day.
