The Indian Space Agency successfully orbited the fourth time to take the Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft closer to the moon.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said that the work on the spacecraft’s shift began at 6.18 pm, for which the onboard propulsion system was used for 1,155 seconds.
In this way it has reached the next orbit of 124 km by 164 km. All parameters of the spacecraft are normal.
The next moon-related orbit change is scheduled on September 1, which will be between 6 pm and 7 pm.
Chandrayaan-2 was launched into space on 22 July by India’s heavy-weight rocket Geosynchronis Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark-3 (GSLV Mk3).
The spacecraft is made up of three parts, including the arbiter (weight 2,379 kg, eight payloads), the lander ‘Vikram’ (1,471 kg, four payloads) and the rover ‘Pragyan’ (27 kg, two payloads).
