First de-orbiting manoeuvre for Chandrayaan-2 performed

India Prepares to Touch Down on the Surface of the Moon

Chandrayaan 2 Sucessfully Separated its Lander Vikram

According to details on the ISRO website, the orbit of Vikram Lander is 104 km x 128 km.

During the second de-orbit manoeuver tomorrow, the orbit would further be brought down to 36 km x 110 km, followed by a powered descent and the Vikram Touch down on 7 September between 1.30 am and 2.30 am.

The first de-orbit maneuver for #VikramLander of #Chandrayaan2 spacecraft was performed successfully today (September 03, 2019) at 0850 hrs IST. ISRO chairman Dr K Sivan has noted that the parameters of the orbiter, lander, rover are in good condition. "Both the Orbiter (main spacecraft) and Lander are healthy", ISRO said in a statement after today's manoeuvre. The ISRO informed that the manoeuvre began at 8.50 am (IST) as planned, using the onboard propulsion system.

The unemployment rate in South Africa is almost 28% and this places huge pressure on the lower end of the social ladder. There is no easy answer to this, but it does seem like a combination of straightforward thuggery and xenophobia.

The primary landing site is on a high plain between the craters Manzinus C and Simpelius N 350 kilometers north of the South Pole-Aitken Basin rim. This will happen between 5.30 am and 6.30 am on Saturday. As soon as the rover lands on the moon, it will take the lander and lander rover's selfie which will be available around 11 o'clock on the same day.

In a key event of India's second moon mission Chandrayaan-2, lander "Vikram" was separated from the orbiter Monday. This mission will make India the fourth country after the US, Russia, and China to conduct a soft landing on the moon.

The end result was not a successful fairy-tale of a mission, but a fatal blow to the nation's space dreams as the craft was destroyed.

These areas have stayed extremely cold for huge amounts of time and scientists believe it is likely they contain a fossil record of the early solar system. On Monday, India's first moon lander Vikram was successfully separated from its mother spacecraft 1.15 am. Isro has said that extensive mapping of the lunar surface to study variations in surface composition is essential to trace back the origin and evolution of the Moon. The lander will remain static at the landing location, and will relay data of the rover and its own to the orbiter, which in turn will relay it to the Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) located at Byalalu, near Bengaluru.

India plans to ship people into area by way of 2022.
