Chandrayaan reached 150,000 Km

Our great India's spacecraft Chandrayaan-1 has reached nearly half the distance to the lunar orbit, crossing the 150,000-km mark from the earth on Sunday morning. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) completed third orbit-raising manoeuvre initiated at 7.08 a.m. Sunday by firing the liquid apogee motor for about nine and a half minutes. With this, Chandrayaan spacecraft has entered a much higher elliptical orbit around the earth.
