“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.
