New Delhi: India will launch it's Chandrayaan 2 Moon mission, on July 15, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The Chandrayaan 2 launch will aim to place a rover on the Moon.
This mission is India's second effort to send a probe to study the Moon. However, different from Chandrayaan 1, Chandrayaan 2 will have a rover that will move around on the lunar surface for around 14 Earth days; Chandrayaan 1 just had an orbiter that revolved around the Moon and an impactor that landed on the lunar surface and came to a rest.
A GSLV Mk-III rocket will launch Chandrayaan-2 and land on the Moon around September 6 this year -- less than two months after being launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.
The Chandrayaan-2 launch will take place in the early hours of Monday, July 15 -- 2:51 am to be precise. Those wanting to watch the Chandrayaan 2 launch live have several choices.
