India has acquired a significant milestone in India’s moon mission. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will fire Chnadrayaan-2’s liquid engine on Tuesday. “It’s tomorrow morning (tentatively between 8:30 am and 9:30). It’s challenging,” Chairman of Indian Space Research Organisation K Sivan said on Monday.

ISRO has also mentioned that the spacecraft will enter its final orbit passing over the lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from Moon’s surface. Accordingly, the Vikram lander will be separated from the orbit on September 2 as per Bengaluru -headquartered space agency. On the onset of the initiation of powered descent to make a soft landing on the lunar surface on September 7, two-orbit maneuvers will be performed on the lander.

The spacecraft has been continuously monitored on a regular basis from the Missile Operation Complex (MOX) at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) antennas at Byalalu, near Bengaluru.

The space agency has said- “This mission will help us gain a better understanding of the origin and evolution of the Moon by conducting detailed topographical studies, comprehensive mineralogical analyses, and a host of other experiments on the lunar surface.”

Furthermore, this mission will also discover the presence of water molecules on the Moon and new rock types with unique chemical composition as told by the agency.
