Chandrayaan 2 will aim for the Moon again on July 22

Chandrayaan 2 will aim for the Moon again on July 22

All technical flaws have been fixed.

The space agency has rectified the fault in its 'Bahubali' rocket-Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mk III) whose Monday flight with Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft was called off an hour before its lift off at 2.51 a.m.

The launch will now take place at 2:43 pm at Satish Dhawan Space Research Centre in Sriharikota.

The launch is now at 2.43 pm on July 22, ISRO tweeted.

"Couple of dates are being looked at for the rocket's launch". The Chandrayaan-2 mission was aborted less than an hour before takeoff on Monday.

It was earlier reported that the launch of Chandrayaan-2 was pushed to October. Later, its date was extended to January 3 and again to 31st January. And second, because July 15 was the longest launch window (10 minutes), which Isro felt was the best day for launch, which gave the agency additional days around Moon before the lander separation procedure. How different is it from Chandrayaan-1?

The Redmi K20 Pro's screen supports Full DC dimming, so you won't notice any screen flicker on this flagship device. Xiaomi is calling it Horizon display and it supports DCI-P3 color gamut and HDR (with Widevine L1 certification).

Chandrayaan-2 is riding the GSLV Mk-III rocket, which is the most powerful built by ISRO but not enough to reach the lunar orbit in one shot.

Critics have questioned the expense of the mission in the 1.3-billion-person country plagued by widespread poverty and high child mortality rates.

It hopes the $150m mission will be the first to land on the Moon's south pole. The only thing that will change is the number of days the spacecraft goes around Moon before lander separation.

India successfully test-fired an anti-satellite weapon in March, which Modi said demonstrated the country's capability as a space power alongside the United States, Russia and China.

What will the orbiter, lander and rover work?

This would not only ensure calculated fuel efficiency of the orbiter, but would also make the mission successful, he added. It was to remain in the earth's orbit for the first 17 days after launch, incrementally increasing its orbit several times before embarking on a five-day journey towards the lunar orbit. Lander will check whether earthquakes occur on the moon or not.
