Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft is expected to reach the moon's orbit on 20th of August. "Subsequently, we have planned to have a series of maneuvers around the moon and finally on September 7, we will be landing on the moon near its south pole", he added.

"After launching the spacecraft on July 22, we performed several manoeuvres to make Chandrayaan-2 revolve around the earth", Sivan said.

It will be the first Indian expedition to attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface.
