Chandrayaan-2 prepares for Moon landing

Chandrayaan-2 will take one step closer to putting India on the Moon for a second time today, as its Vikram lander separates from the orbiter, ahead of a landing scheduled for 7 September.

Launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation, this mission follows the successful landing of Chandrayaan-1 in 2008, which saw India become the fourth country in history to place its flag on the Moon. If successful, India will also become the fourth nation to achieve a soft landing on the Moon.

The mission has been launched to continue study into lunar water, and will more specifically explore the location and abundance of water present on the Moon.
