Chandrayaan-2 Vikram lander will make a soft landing on the surface of the Moon in the early hours of Saturday, September 7. The Vikram lander is scheduled to make its soft landing between 1.30 am to 2.30 am.
The landing will be followed by the Rover – Pragyaan – roll out between 5.30 am to 6.30 am. The Rover is housed inside the Vikram lander.
The crucial landing of Vikram, onboard the Chandrayaan-2 moon mission, will be carried out by at least eight onboard equipment in a coordinated manner.
The lander Vikram, named after the father of Indian space research programme Dr Vikram Sarabhai, will be landed in a high plain between two craters at a latitude of about 70 degrees South of the moon.
The lander carries three scientific payloads to conduct surface and subsurface science experiments.
