Chandrayaan 2 to be launched on July 22 at 2.43pm

Chandrayaan 2, India’s second mission to the moon, will now be launched at 2:43 pm on Monday.

Announcing fresh date, ISRO tweeted: “Chandrayaan-2 launch, which was called off due to a technical snag on July 15, 2019, is now rescheduled at 2:43 pm IST on Monday, July 22, 2019.”

Chandrayaan 2 launch was called off in the early hours of July 15 after the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) encountered a technical snag.

“A technical snag was observed in launch vehicle system one hour before the launch. As a measure of abundant precaution, #Chandrayaan2 launch has been called off for today. Revised launch date will be announced later,” ISRO had tweeted earlier. The snag was reportedly noticed when the cryogenic fuel was being loaded.
