After traveling for nearly two months in space, Chandrayaan-2, India's second-ever mission to the Moon, is ready to set foot on its destination, tonight.
Talking about the operation, former NASA astronaut and space analyst, Jerry M Linenger, who is currently in India for a live show on the lunar exploration airing on National Geographic, said that the mission will position India as a "powerhouse."
Chandrayaan-2 will make India first nation to touch moon's South-Pole
If things go as planned, and the mission lands successfully, it would be a major milestone for both ISRO and India.
It will not only make India the fourth country in the world (after Russia, US, and China) to land on the Moon, but also the first nation ever to touch down on its south pole, a territory that has never been explored before.
Last but not the least, you can watch Vikram's landing live by tuning into ISRO's official channels on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook at 1:10 AM on September 7. The historic moment would also be telecasted on Doordarshan and ISRO's official website.
