Chandrayaan 2 Launch: New Time, Date and where to watch LIVE?
New Delhi, July 20: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has announced a new launch date for its ambitious second Moon landing mission Chandrayaan-2. It will now be launched on July 22, seven days after the ambitious launch by ISRO had to be aborted an hour before the lift-off.
The launch of Chandrayaan-2, India's second lunar mission, scheduled for 2.51 am on 15 July, was postponed when scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (Isro) detected a technical snag in the launch vehicle system minutes before lift-off.
"Revised launch date would be announced later," the space agency tweeted at 2.37 am. Isro now says Chandrayaan-2 is scheduled to launch from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 2.43 pm on 22 July.
