Chandrayaan 2

On 22nd July 2019, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) conducted India's second lunar exploration mission "Chandrayaan-2". 

However, the launch was initially planned for 14th July 2019, but due to some technical glitch, it was then rescheduled. The primary objective of Chandrayaan-2 is to manifest, that it is capable of a soft landing on the lunar surface, and a robotic rover is capable of being operated on the surface.

The ambitious low-cost space programme took flight in the sky racing the heartbeats of a billion hearts. Chandrayaan-2 was launched from the spaceport in Sriharikota with its powerful rocket GSLV-Mklll-M1. 
If the mission turns out successful, India will become the fourth country after the US, Russia and China to make a soft landing on the Moon's surface. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote on Twitter that this is a historic moment for India. Also, the whole country is proud of the successful launch of Chandrayaan 2. He congratulated the scientists who have been working so hard for this mission to succeed.

The U.S. Embassy of India also congratulated on India's giant leap.

The first lunar mission "Chandrayaan-1" in 2008 was not able to land on the lunar surface, but it succeeded in carrying out a detailed search for water on the Moon using radars. Chandrayaan-2 will move a step forward and examine the south pole of the Moon.
