Chandrayaan-2 Jerry Linenger excited for Sept 7

Chandrayaan-2 Jerry Linenger excited for Sept 7”

The expedition would also shed light on a completely unexplored section of the Moon, its South Polar region.

The Lander is now in an orbit that would be about 35 km from the lunar surface at its nearest point (perigee) from where it will begin its final descent on to the Moon, it said, adding the orbit was 101 km from the lunar surface at the farthest (apogee). Chandrayaan 2 will be the first mission to land near the lunar South Pole at 70 degrees latitude. The entire planet will benefit from the mission. 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. There is a possibility of tumbling if the landing spot is slanted. "I will definitely be on the edge of my seat", he said. It's humankind accomplishing great stuff.

Mr Linenger had gone on the space shuttle and spent five months on the Russian space station "MIR". During our live show, I am going to be trying to give people some insight into the mission from my own experience. "I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes well", he said.

The second de-orbiting manoeuvre for Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft was performed successfully on Wednesday, according to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

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.

The event is a momentous one for Indians as India will be carving a place for itself among the world's space faring nations with its attempts to become the fourth country to land on the moon after the former Soviet Union, US and China. The mission's predecessor, Chandrayaan 1, had collected data which pointed to the presence of buried ice near the south pole surface.
