ISRO announces fresh date of Chandrayaan-2 launch

The Indian Space Research Organisation has announced fresh date of Chandrayaan-2 launch. The rocket will now lift-off at 2:43 pm on July 22. 

 

The initial launch of Chandrayaan-2 was called off due to a technical snag on July 15, 2019. The ISRO had then announced that the launch will be rescheduled.

Technical snag in GSLV MK-3 rocket occurred just an hour before the launch on July 15. The launch was scheduled at 2:51 am. The launch was then temporarily called off.

The GSLV-Mk III will take off Seven days after the ambitious launch by ISRO had to be aborted an hour before the lift-off.

"A technical snag was observed in launch vehicle system at 1 hour before the launch. As a measure of abundant precaution, #Chandrayaan2 launch has been called off for today. The revised launch date will be announced later," ISRO had then tweeted when the mission got aborted without elaborating the reason.
