Chandrayaan-2 is India’s second Moon mission after Chandrayaan-1 and it will be launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota on-board GSLV Mk-III on July 15, 2019. The historic Chandrayaan 2 mission will target a completely unexplored section of the Moon that is, its “South Polar region – Aitken Basin”.

By conducting topographical studies and mineralogical analyses alongside a few other experiments on the Moon’s Surface, the ISRO’s ambitious mission aims to get a better understanding of the Moon’s origin and its evolution. According to ISRO, the mission Chandrayaan 2 will also nurture the findings of Chandrayaan 1.

It is to be noted that the mission is being considered as a challenge since no space agency has ever explored the South Polar Region of the Moon.
