The launch of Chandrayaan-2, initially scheduled for Monday, had previously been canceled due to a “technical problem.”
The objective of Chandrayaan-2 will be to explore the southern pole of our satellite, conduct scientific experiments and study the chemical and mineral composition of the lunar surface.
