Chandrayaan-2 Launch on July 15 from SHAR Satish Dhawan Space Centre n the 15th of JULY at 2:51 A.M.
After a lot of turmoil, the Indian Space Research Organization has issued dates for the second mission of India for Moon, Chandrayaan-2. The launch of Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-MK-8 will be launched on the 15th of July at 2:51 A.m, carrying spacecraft, an orbiter, lander, and a rover.
Chairman of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Siwan announced on Wednesday that Chandrayaan-2 is India’s second mission.
Once the spacecraft reaches the Moon’s orbit, then it will try to make a soft landing in a region 600 kilometers away from the Moon’s the South Pole. According to a report in this science, it would be the first time to touch any mission so far from the equator. The lender will be separated from the orbiter and will land on the surface for the landing of India’s first moon around 6th September, ISRO said in the estimation.
Pragya Rover will come out of Vikram Lander, in which there will be a group of scientific instruments, who will study the Moon surface. Some of the mission equipment will also be installed on landers and orbits. The Orbiter module of Chandrayaan-2 will surround the Moon and give information on situations on the surface of data and relay, ISRO tells on its website.
The launch will be on the GSLV MK-III vehicle at 2.51 pm from the space station of Sriharikota.
ISRO had earlier launched a launch window for the mission from July 9 to July 16.
There are three modules in the 3.8 tonne mass spacecraft – Orbiter, Lander (Vikram) and Rover (Pragyan).
Sivan said that the orbiter will have eight payloads, lander three and rover two.
He said that the mission cost of Chandrayaan-2 in relation to the satellite was Rs 603 crores. The cost of GSLV MK III is Rs. 375 crores.
According to ISRO, the orbiter will rotate around the moon, with the scientific payload. Lander will deploy soft land and rover on the Moon at a predetermined location.
The scientific payload on orbiter, lander, and rover is expected to be done in the mineral and fundamental studies of the moon surface.
The orbiter and lander module will be mechanically interfered and stacked together as an integrated module and will be adjusted inside the GSLV Mk-III launch vehicle. The rover is placed inside the lender.

A 3,800-kilogram spacecraft includes an orbiter which will surround the moon at 100 km; Vikram, a five-footed lander that will land on the moon on or around September 6; And a robot rover, Pragyan, who will examine the lunar terrain around it.
ISRO said that all three modules would carry the payload but did not specify them or their purpose. Orbiter alone will have eight payloads or devices. The lender will take four while the rover will be equipped with two devices. “All modules are being prepared for Chandrayaan-2 launch,” a recent update said, mentioning only 13 payloads
