With this achievement, India will become the fourth country to do so. So far only the US, Russia and China have landed their moon.
Chandrayaan-2 was launched from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh on 22 July. It was launched with the help of ISRO’s heaviest rocket GSLV-Mark 3. At the moment, all the important stages before landing have been crossed. On September 2, the lander was separated from the vehicle’s orbiter. After this, on 3 and 4 September, its orbit was reduced (de-orbiting) and it was brought closer to the moon. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) chief K.K. In the words of Sivan, now the toughest moment of this whole campaign is going to come. This moment is also complicated because ISRO has not yet made a soft landing in space.
What has yet to happen?

ISRO chief Sivan says that the lander will land on the moon in the same way as flying saucers are depicted in science fiction films. With the help of the camera on the lander, his computer-software will decide for itself exactly where to land. Four hours after landing of the lander, the rover ‘Pragyan’ will also come out of it.
Just Chandrayaan 2 in every mind

The way for humans to settle on the moon will open
US space agency NASA astronaut Jerry Linanger says that this lunar mission of India will not only increase its science and technology capability, but it will also open the way for humans to settle on the moon. Chandrayaan-2 will confirm the water here. If there was water at the south pole of the moon, that area could be quite suitable for human missions. Lineanger has come to India to participate in the live telecast program of Chandrayaan-2 by National Geographic Channel.
