The Indian Space and Research Organization (ISRO) is launching its second mission to the moon – Chandrayaan 2 on 15 July. It is the follow-up mission to Chandrayaan 1 but this mission will be more challenging. Unlike the last mission, this will include a rover and a lander along with an orbiter. This mission will also mark the first time any country has ever gone to the south pole of the moon, and it will put India on the map as one of four countries to have landed on the moon, alongside the US, China and Russia.
The rocket is set to launch on 15 July 2019 at 2.51 am from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
