It’s a moment of pride for the India and its people as Chandrayaan -2 successfully launched on 22nd July at 2.43 pm IST from Sriharikota. The Chandrayaan 2 mission was earlier aborted on 15 July due to a ‘technical snag’ identified few minutes before the launch.

It is India’s second great mission to the moon to explore the south pole of the moon. It is the first to attempt a soft landing on the moon by 7 September with the help of lander Vikram. The GSLV Mk-III with its own orbiter propulsion will power the vehicle to escape out into the Moon’s surface. Earlier, Chandrayaan-1, which was launched in October 2008, confirmed the presence of water on the moon’s surface.

People were also admiring the women who led this most crucial and important mission of launch of Chandrayaan 2. It is a great example of importance of women empowerment and women education in our country.
“India will launch a lunar mission Chandrayaan-2 on July 22. With this, it will become the fourth country to land on the moon.
