Chandrayaan-1, the first Indian scientific space mission that was launched on 22 October, has beamed back its first images, posted on the website of the Indian Space Research Organisation, ISRO (here!). Mission scientists say the camera is in perfect working order, great news for them and congratulations on a successful mission so far!
Just today ISRO announced that Chandrayaan entered its Lunar transfer trajectory in the early hours of this morning to bring it on track to enter a Lunar orbit in a few days’ time.
