During this manoeuvre, the spacecraft's liquid engine was sacked for about 1203 seconds. An orbit raising manoeuvre is the process of raising a satellite into an orbit towards to Moon, while it still revolves around the Earth. The Chandrayaan-2 mission aims to expand the knowledge about the moon, leading to a better understanding of its origin and evolution. The spacecraft was carried by the heavy-lift rocket GSLV-MkIII, nicknamed "Baahubali".
