|India’s moon lander Vikram is all set to land on the moon during wee hours tomorrow. The scientists at the Satellite Control Centre of the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network in Bengaluru, are busy with the preparations for the historic moment. Currently, Lander Vikram is encircling the moon in a very low orbit.|
ISRO said, the lander will be subjected to a powered descent towards the lunar terrain between 1 AM and 2 AM which will lead the probe to touch down on the floor between 1.30 AM and 2.30 AM. After about four hours of landing, Vikram will allow the rover Pragyaan to roll out from it and do the probing of the lunar soil.
ISRO Chairman, K Sivan has said that this will be first soft landing for the space agency. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to reach Bengaluru tonight and witness the landing on the Moon.
