And ahead of its launch, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has finally unveiled the first images of the launch vehicle of the lunar mission today.

ISRO's earlier mission to the Moon in 2008, called Chandrayaan, not only succeeded but also made the remarkable discovery of water on the lunar surface.

The mission is to the lunar South Pole region because the possibility of water being present in the permanently shadowed areas of the region is higher. A large section of this surface stays in the shadow compared to the North Pole.
