The ISRO chairman said that the ISRO is ready for Chandrayan-II Mission, which is an advanced version from the previous Chandrayan-I Mission. “It consists of an Orbiter, Lander and Rover configuration. It is planned to be launched as a composite stack into the Earth Parking Orbit (EPO) of 170 X 18,500 km by GSLV-Mk II. The Orbiter carries the combined stack up to the moon, till the Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI). The combined stack is then inserted into a lunar orbit of 100 km x 100 km. The Lander is separated from the Orbiter in this orbit. The Chandrayan II will be totally an Indian mission,” he explained.
