Chandrayaan 2 successfully entered the lunar orbit of the Moon on August 20. It had executed one of the trickiest manoeuvres on its historic mission to the Moon. ISRO said a series of orbit manoeuvres would be performed by Chandrayaan2 spacecraft to enable it to enter its final orbit, passing the lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from the Moon's surface.

Chandrayaan 2, which cost Rs 978 crore, was launched on July 22 by GSLV MkIII-M1 vehicle. Chandrayaan 2 departed from Earth's orbit and moved towards the Moon on August 14.
