India on June 22 successfully launched its second lunar mission Chandrayaan-2 on board its powerful rocket GSLV-MkIII-M1 from the spaceport in Sriharikota to explore the uncharted South Pole of the celestial body by landing a rover.
The Chandrayaan-2 launch was first scheduled for July 15 but had to be aborted due to a technical snag. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief K Sivan confirmed that all the glitches were rectified for the final launch. Chandrayaan-2 is scheduled for 15 crucial activities.
“Chandrayaan-2 will land on the South Pole on the Moon on September 6 or 7. It will be helpful in a lot of scientific testing and scientists across and beyond India are looking forward to the launch,” said ISRO chief K Sivan.
Chandrayaan-2 is expected to set foot on the Moon where no mission has ever reached. The spacecraft consists of an orbiter, lander, and rover together referred to as "composite body." The probe's total mass is 3.8 tons.
