mumbai sources reported that the Indian Space Research Organization was able to keep its date with moon on Monday after it successfully launched Chandrayan-2 the country’s first lander mission to the moon through an extremely narrow window of opportunity lasting a few minutes. Meanwhile the launch of Chandrayaan-2 was originally slated for July 16 when it had a window of over an hour but had to be aborted an hour before lift-off because of a fuel leak.

Furthermore Chandrayaan-2, india's indigenous moon mission was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh at 2.43 pm on Monday. Reportedly the 20 hour countdown for the launch of india's second lunar exploration mission after Chandrayaan-1, began on Sunday evening. Apparently Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) chief K Sivan said that the Chandrayaan-2 will perform 15 crucial manoeuvres in the days to come.



Moreover Sivan said that all the preparatory works regarding the launch have been completed and technical snags that developed in the first attempt have been rectified. Perhaps this project is very special for the Indian Space Research Organization as for the first time a woman is heading any project at the ISRO, said K Sivan, Chairman of ISRO and also, 30% of the team comprises women. Vanitha and Karidhal have been associated with ISRO for more than two decades.
