NEW DELHI: Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Saturday stated that India's indigenous moon mission - Chandrayaan-2 is on course to land on the lunar south polar region on September 7.

"Hello! This is Chandrayaan 2 with a special update. I wanted to let everyone back home know that it has been an amazing journey for me so far and I am on course to land on the lunar south polar region on 7th September. To know where I am and what I'm doing, stay tuned," read a post on the official Twitter handle of ISRO.
