ISRO just shared the first pictures of the Earth as viewed by Chandrayaan-2
The Earth is stunningly beautiful, and that is an unbiased opinion.
Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander started shooting pictures of the Earth on August 3, 2019 using the LI4 camera on board. On Sunday, August 4, The Indian Space Research Organisation released the first set of these images, depicting Earth as viewed from space.
Chandrayaan-2 will be orbiting the Earth for 23 days and on August 14, ISRO will conduct the Trans Lunar Injection, beginning its descent to land on the moon by August 20. This will be done by a series of four orbit raising maneouvers, allowing the spacecraft to escape the Earth's gravitational pull on the fifth trip around the Earth. Four maneouvers have been completed already, and the craft is now in the final leg of its journey.
