ISRO announces new launch date for Chandrayaan 2, to be launched on 22nd July 2019

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

The Chandrayaan 2 space mission, which was called off on the 15th of July due to a technical slag, has been rescheduled to launch at 2.43 p.m. IST on July 22, 2019.

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.

Chandrayaan 2 is India’s second lunar spacecraft which was to be launched on the 15th of July 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.
