Chandrayaan-2 on Wednesday successfully entered the Lunar Transfer Trajectory.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Saturday said that India’s indigenous moon mission Chandrayaan-2 is set to land on the lunar south polar region on September 7.
“Hello! This is Chandrayaan 2 with a special update. I wanted to let everyone back home know that it has been an amazing journey for me so far and I am on course to land on the lunar south polar region on 7th September. To know where I am and what I’m doing, stay tuned,” read a post on the official Twitter handle of ISRO.
The spacecraft will be the first Indian expedition to attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface. This mission will make India the fourth country after the US, Russia, and China to carry out a soft landing on the moon.
