“I am extremely happy with the mission so far. The images taken by the lander suggest it should be able to function as expected during the 15-terrifying moments when it goes in for the lunar landing,” said ISRO chairman K Sivan.

The Lander ‘Vikram’ and the rover ‘Pragyaan’ is set to make the lunar landing on September 7.

The third orbit raising manuevre was completed on July 29 and the the fourth on August 2.
