Chandrayaan-2 is the second lunar exploration mission of ISRO and it was launched on July 22 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. Although earlier it was supposed to be launched on July 15, the launching was postponed due to a technical glitch. The rover is expected to land on the moon on September 7 and it will make India the fourth country in the world to achieve a soft landing on the Moon; the first three are USSR, USA and China.
