Fifty-six minutes before the mission could launch, ISRO scientists noticed a drop in pressure in one of the helium tanks because it had sprung a leak.
This mission 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.
