Chandrayaan 2: When and where to watch ISROs second moon mission

We are at the cusp of a historic moment with the Indian Space Research Organisation all geared up to take yet another leap in the aerospace sector. Chandrayaan 2 will be launched in a few hours.

The highly-awaited launch will take place in the wee hours of July 15. It will take place in the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 0251 hours on July 15.

The Chandrayaan 2, as per ISRO Chairman Kailasavadivoo Sivan, contains three main components - the Orbiter, Lander, and Rover. The total composite module will weigh about 3.8 tonnes.

The Chandrayaan 2 will be launched onboard GSLV MK-III. The Lander, Vikram, will in all likeliness make a soft landing on the lunar surface on September 6, 2019. The Rover will then carry out experiments on the Lunar surface for one lunar day (which equals 14 days on Earth). However, the Orbiter will continue its mission for a year.

With Chandrayaan 2, India will continue its search for water on the lunar surface after Chandrayaan 1's massive breakthrough - finding the presence of water molecules on the Moon's surface.
