India's ambitious lunar mission Chandrayaan 2 is scheduled to make a soft landing on the surface of the moon on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday between 1:30 am to 2:30 am. This will be followed by the Rover roll out between 5:30 am to 6:30 am, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) stated. The crucial landing of 'Vikram', Chandrayaan-2's moon lander, will be carried out by at least eight onboard equipment in a coordinated manner. Dr. Mukund Rao, Space Expert, said "One of the biggest accomplishments of Chandrayaan-2 will be the process and technology for the soft landing." The mission took off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on July 22.
