The Indian Space Research Organisation has found a suitable window to launch India’s second spacecraft to the moon, 'Chandrayaan-2' between July 9 and July 16 with an expected soft landing on the moon on September 6. ISRO sources have confirmed that GSLV Mark-III will launch Chandrayaan-2 from Sriharikota during the favoured window time.
ISRO has said that all three modules of the moon mission, Orbiter, Lander-Vikram and Rover-Pragyan are ready. The modules underwent tests in the ISRO satellite Integration and test establishment campus in Bengaluru and are ready to be shifted to Sriharikota spaceport of ISRO.
India is standing on a cusp of creating history by becoming the only country in the world to launch a rover in the lunar South Pole. (AIR NEWS)
