New Delhi, Aug. 21 -- "Today Chandrayaan 2 completes one year on Moon orbit. It was successfully inserted in the Lunar orbit on August 20, 2019," said ISRO. The moment has been one to be proud of by every Indian. And why not, it was one of the greatest tech developments. The Chandrayaan 2 had the ability to soft-land and operate a robotic rover on the lunar surface.
"Though the soft-landing attempt (of the lander carrying the rover) was not successful, the orbiter, which was equipped with eight scientific instruments, was successfully placed in the lunar orbit. The orbiter completed more than 4,400 orbits around the Moon and all the instruments are currently performing well," the Indian Space Research Organisation said.
