The scientific community across the world has have their eyes glued as the mission may uncover mysteries surrounding the moon's south pole. It said both the Orbiter and Lander are healthy.
Geographically, the Chandrayaan 2 will make a landing at 70.9 degrees south latitude and 22.7 degrees east longitude.

The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft will be the first-ever expedition to the south pole of the moon.
On the day of the Chandrayaan-1's launch in 2008, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) faced a "very tough situation" as it had a very short launch window and the weather was "very, very bad", Dr. M Annadurai, the Project Director of the successful mission, said. The Pragyan rover - translates to "wisdom" in Sanskrit - is a 6-wheeled and AI-powered vehicle that has been integrated within the lander.
The success of such missions enhanced India's reputation in managing them and makes its case in any future collaborative planetary ventures much better in the worldwide arena, the scientist added. Describing a soft-landing on the Moon, former ISRO chief G Madhavan Nair said it's something like flying saucers coming in hovering on the top and then slowly descending like in science fiction. The entire planet will benefit from the mission. The world is going to be on the edge of its seat. The separation of the Vikram Lander from Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter took place on Monday at 13.15 pm. In a major milestone for India's second Moon mission, the Chandrayaan-2 had successfully entered the lunar orbit on August 20 by performing LOI manoeuvre. "The icing on the cake will be lander touching the lunar surface". According to the ISRO, the objective of Chandrayaan-2 is to develop and demonstrate the key technologies for end-to-end lunar mission capability, including soft-landing and roving on the lunar surface.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
