Bangalore: Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft is slated to reach about one km away from its final orbital home of 100 kms above the moon’s surface on Wednesday evening.
Isro scientists are planning the final orbit reduction manoeuvre for about one minute at around 7 pm that would bring the lunar spacecraft to around 101 kms above the moon’s surface, Isro sources said.
The circular orbit is expected to be trimmed to 100 kms on Thursday, they added.
