- n. apoapsis in orbit around the moon
“Analogous expressions denoting the relations of the Projectile towards the Moon, would be _periselene_ and _aposelene_.”
“Nov 10: The spacecraft moves to 187 km from the moon (periselene) and 255 km away (aposelene), orbiting elliptically once in every 2 hours and 16 minutes over the polar regions of the moon.”
“Nov 11: Chandrayaan-1 moves into further lower orbit of 102-km periselene and 255-km aposelene.”
“The nearest point of this orbit (periselene) lies at a distance of about 500 km from the moon's surface while the farthest point (aposelene) lies at about 7,500 km.”
“The nearest point of this orbit (periselene) lies at a distance of about 500 km from the Moon's surface while the farthest point (aposelene) is at about 7,500 km.”
“As a result, the farthest point of Chandrayaan-1's orbit (aposelene) from the Moon's surface was first reduced from 7502 to 255 km and then finally to 100 km.”
“On Saturday (November 8), ISRO accomplished with aplomb the most crucial and critical manoeuvre of safely inserting Chandrayaan-1 into the lunar orbit with an aposelene of 7,502 km and a periselene of 504 km.”
“After the lunar orbit insertion manoeuvre was done and Chandrayaan-1 achieved an aposelene of 7,502 km and a periselene of 504 km, ISRO executed a series of manoeuvres to reduce the spacecraft's orbit and bring it closer to the moon.”
“On November 10, the SCC performed "a difficult manoeuvre" of steeply reducing the aposelene from 7,502 km to 255 km and the periselene from 200 km to 187 km.”
“Chandrayaan-1's aposelene (farthest distance from the moon) was 7,502 km and its periselene”
