Chandrayaan-2 all set to reach polar synchronous orbit around moon

@isroIndia’s second lunar probe Chandrayaan-2 is all set to reach a polar synchronous orbit around the moon tomorrow. 

ISRO, in a release, said that the final round of lunar-bound orbit reducing manoeuvre would be held by 6 PM tomorrow to reach the circular path. 

It is planned to take the integrated lunar craft Chandrayaan-2 consisting of the orbiter, lander Vikram and rover Pragyaan in about a hundred-kilometre distant path around the moon with tomorrow’s last such operation. 

A similar operation held yesterday evening has been a resounding success, as it reached the intended path.

The circular and low distant path is considered the best-suited one, for the separation of the lander from the orbiter on September 2.
