Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chairman K Sivan on Tuesday expressed happiness over Chandrayaan-2 successfully entering the Moon’s orbit. Addressing a press conference after the spacecraft entered the lunar orbit, Sivan said that the next major event is September 2, when the Vikram lander will be separated from the orbiter.
“The next major event will happen on 2nd September when the lander will be separated from the orbiter. On 3rd September we will have a small maneuver for about three seconds to ensure that the systems of the lander are running normally,” said the ISRO chairman.
