Where do u c these numbers, pls? ISRO Chandrayaan-1 site says "last updated January 2007". :roll:

Also, what orbit is this? Already into a Hohman transfer orbit or something like that towards the moon, or is there some other step needed? When is it expected to reach the Moon to inject into lunar orbit?

Madhavan Nair speaking now. Says every parameter on dot. Spacecraft achieved sufficient altitude and direction. Orbiting earth at 230km apogee. Will be raised to 400,000km altitude gradually. 15 days to complete remaining part of journey.

Congrats ISRO!! Job well done so far!!
