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

ISRO, in a release, said that the final round of lunar-bound orbit reducing manoeuvre would be held by 6 PM 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 today’s last such operation. 

The circular and low distant path is considered the best-suited one, for the separation of the lander from the orbiter on September 2. The lander carrying the rover is set to make a soft-landing near the lunar South Pole on the seventh of next month.
