Chandrayaan 2 Launch Date: Bahubali Chandrayaan 2 Reschedule on 22 July 2019
Chandrayaan 2 Launch Date: Bahubali Chandrayaan 2 Reschedule on 22 July 2019: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has given a new date for the launch of Chandrayaan-2. According to ISRO, Chandran-2 will now be launched on July 22, 2019 at 2:40 pm. Let us say that due to technical failure on July 15, 2019, ISRO had deferred the launch of India’s ambitious project. ISRO has announced this to its official Twitter handle.
Chandrayaan-2 launch, which was called due to a technical snag on July 15, 2019, is now rescheduled at 2:43 pm IST on Monday, July 22, 2019. #Chandrayaan2 #GSLVMkIII #ISRO

Chandrayaan Mission 2 was approved on September 18, 2008. About 8 years later, the test was started in 2016 for this mission. ISRO had announced this year about the launch of Chandrayaan 2 in May. For this, the timeline of 9 July to 16 July was fixed. The special feature of this mission is that it will have an orbiter, a lander (whose name has been named Vikram) and a rover (named as Pragyan). The main objective of this mission is to make soft land and study its surface on the Moon. This mission will be the next stop for the earlier Moon mission.
Where Chandrayaan 2 Landing
Chandrayaan 2 will be the first mission of the world, which will be soft landing in the moon’s South Polar region. Not only this, it is India’s first mission that will have soft landing on the surface of the moon with fully developed indigenous technology. With this mission, India will become the fourth country in the world to have a soft landing on the moon’s surface. Talking about the experiments, the playloads used in it will include tropography, mineral identification (on the moon’s surface) and its distribution (dispersion), the thermo-physic character of soil, the surface chemical composition and the atmosphere of the moon will study.
What is Chandrayaan 2’s Lander Vikram
Talk about Chandrayaan 2’s Lander Vikram, it will make Chandrayaan a safe land on the moon surface by 6th September. Life component of this project, Mission Components Orbiter, will be functional in about a year. The mission of Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover will be completed in a lunar day (14 days according to the Earth). Its orbiter carries out 8 scientific playloads, which will study the lunar surface (the surface of the moon). In addition to this, the orbiter will also get information about the environment of the moon. The weight of its orbiter is 2,379 kilograms, which can generate 1000W electric power. It is placed in a 100×100 km lunar polar orbit. The weight of Vikram Lander is 1,471 kg, which can generate 650W of electric power. Talking about 6 wheeled enlightened rover, it weighs 27 kg, which can generate 50W electric power. It can travel up to 500 meters and depends on solar energy for functioning.
