Chandrayaan-1, the Indian Space Research Organization's (ISRO) lunar orbiter, was captured into orbit around the Moon on 8 November. One day later, the spacecraft performed a maneuver that lowered the closest point of its orbit down to 200 km from the Moon. The spacecraft's liquid-fuel propelled engine was fired at 12:21 CET (16:51 Indian Standard Time) when it was at a distance of about 500 km from the Moon. This reduced the spacecraft's velocity, enabling the Moon's gravitational field to...

BANGALORE, India -- The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) placed two domestic and eight foreign satellites in orbit Monday in what the agency said was the most complex mission launched as yet by its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). The mission took place from ISRO's second launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on the east coast of southern India. The rocket flew without its usual six strap-on boosters carrying ISRO's Cartosat-2A and Indian Mini...
