Reportedly after india's ambitious moon mission, Chandrayaan-2, was called off earlier this week following a technical snag with the launch vehicle, the Indian Space Research Organization announced on Thursday that the launch has been rescheduled to July 22. As per report the launch will now take place at 2:43 pm at Satish Dhawan Space Research Centre in Sriharikota.

Furthermore with less than an hour to go before the scheduled launch on July 15, ISRO aborted the scheduled launch following a technical issue with the nipple joint of the launcher and the countdown clock stopped at 56 minutes at 24 seconds. Further the GSLV-MK III, the vehicle carrying Chandrayaan-2, is india’s most powerful launcher. It is set to hold 13 payloads scientific devices and one passive experiment from NASA. Chandrayaan-2 has three modules – an orbiter, a lander (Vikram), and a rover (Pragyan).

Moreover the lander, Vikram, is set to touch base near the south Pole of the moon, which is the darker side of the moon. The lunar south Pole is especially interesting because of the lunar surface area here remains in shadow, and is much larger than that at the North Pole, according to ISRO and almost the entire orbiter, lander and rover were designed and made in india.
