Chandrayaan 2 launch called off one hour before the launch

Revised date of the launch will be announced soon.

An hour before the historic Chandrayaan 2 launch, a technical snag was observed in the launch vehicle system. Following that, as a measure of ‘abundant precaution,’ the launch was called off.

Revised date of the launch will be announced soon.

Chandrayaan 2 is India’s second lunar spacecraft which was to be launched earlier today from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. It was to be launched at 2:51 am. However, at 3:09 am, ISRO tweeted that the launch has been called off.

If the mission turns out to be successful India would be the fourth country to land on the moon. Previously the US, the former Soviet Union and China were the ones to have successfully accomplished the moon landing.

In a major feat, the Chandrayaan 2 mission is actually cheaper than Hollywood blockbusters like Avengers Infinity Wars and Bandra Worli Sea link.
