KAGUYA (SELENE) Lunar Orbit Adjustment Maneuver (LOI4)

QUOTE
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) plans to carry out a lunar orbit adjustment maneuver
(LOI4) for the “KAGUYA” (SELENE) from around 9:24 a.m. on October 10, 2007 (Japan Standard
Time, JST.)


During the 4th LOI, Kaguya will lower from 2400 km apogee altitude to 800 km apogee altitude. The next step will free another small satelite of 50 kg: VRAD on October 12. Later, there will be two more LOI adjustments before entering the Lunar orbit at Oct 19.
