The launch of GSLV Mk-III-M1/Chandrayaan-2 was supposed to happen on July 15th 2:30 AM, unfortunately, the Indian Space Agency ISRO had to cancel the launch at the last moment due to some technical glitch. The Indian Space and Research Organisation (ISRO) has fixed the glitch and announced the new launch date and time, which is on 22 July at 2:43 PM IST.
Chandrayaan-2 is the biggest and most ambitious lunar mission so far, this mission will boost the space exploration, research and studies not only for the ISRO or India but for the entire humanity. Chandrayaan-2 will also enhance our understanding of the nearest celestial body and the only natural satellite or moon of our planet.
Launch of the lunar mission Chandrayaan 2 is the 2nd Moon probe mission by the ISRO and by this mission, India will again create a new history by doing what other countries has not done yet. Chandrayaan 2 will explore the Moon’s south polar region which is completely unexplored yet.
