Chandrayaan-I Enters Lunar Trajectory

India’s first unmanned moon spacecraft, Chandrayaan-I has entered the lunar transfer trajectory and is heading to an apogee of 3,80,000 KM as ISRO scientists today carried the fifth and final orbit-raising manoeuvre. This is expected to happen on November 8. Today morning around 5 am the spacecraft’s 440 Newton liquid engine was fired for 145 seconds.
