Chandrayan-2 successfully rises, puts the satellite into orbit

India’s second lunar voyage and its first mission in the world, led
by two women, gained momentum after the ambitious Chandrayan
-2 mission, aimed at the South Pole of the Moon, reached an orbit
6,000 km more than planned.

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) was defeated last
week and achieved a perfect launch at 14:43 from the second launch
pad at the Satish-Dhavan space center, ORD, in what was the first
operational flight of the GSLV-MKIII.


Starting with the scientists from the Mission Control Center and
ending with the observation gallery, the media center and the
millions that are watching on television across the country, the
launch looked like a gnawing nail at a sports match. Greetings,
whistles and claps each time the launch goal was reached, the
launch in the Viewing Gallery and Media Center was similar to
the reception usually conducted by movie stars or great athletes.

Sixteen minutes after the rocket climbed into the cloudy sky,
leaving a trail of bright orange plumes, and its engines emitted
a majestic roar before disappearing behind the clouds, the
spacecraft was put into orbit with a perigee of 169.7 km and
an apogee of 45,475 km . , Apogee more than planned.


“The GSLV-Mark III machine successfully brought Chandrayan-2
into a given orbit. In fact, the orbit is 6,000 km larger than expected.
A satellite will have more life, more fuel and more time for maneuvers
This is the beginning of India’s historic journey to the moon and the
landing at a place near the South Pole to conduct research experiments
on unexplored [sites], ”said ISRO Chairman K. Sivan from Mission
Control after launch. In fact, GSLV showed 15% better than the
previous launch, he noted.

“By launching a satellite into its intended orbit, everything the satellite
crew wanted to do tomorrow, the launch vehicle did today,” he said.
Over the next month and a half, the satellite team will undertake
15 "very important maneuvers."


Mr. Sivan praised everyone who participated in the project. He said
that the "serious technical problem" that led to the interruption of
the launch last week was eliminated, and "now ISRO has returned
to normal with flying colors." The puzzle was seen wisely, and the
work done over the next 24 hours was “stunning”, and the car
quickly returned to its normal state. Over the next one and a half
days, a series of necessary tests was carried out, and the car was
handed over to the team for launch.
