Amaravati: As the countdown for the launch of Chandrayaan 2 from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota progresses, the mission if successful, will make India only the fourth country after the United States, Russia and China to perform a “soft” landing on the Moon and put a rover on the lunar surface.
The Chandrayaan 2, India’s second effort to send a probe to study the Moon, is aimed at placing a rover on the Moon.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) plans to take another giant leap in the aerospace sector. The much-awaited launch of Chandrayaan 2 will take place at 0251 hours on July 15.
Chandrayaan-2, which will be launched by a GSLV Mk-III rocket, will land on the Moon around September 6 this year — less than two months after being launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.
Doordarshan will cover the Chandrayaan 2 launch live. Doordarshan usually covers space launches live with its own commentary and visuals from both the launch pad from the Indian Space Research Organisation’s mission control room.
