The countdown for the launch of the Chandrayaan-2 has begun.

During the countdown period, the rocket and spacecraft’s systems will undergo checks and fuelling.

The Isro successfully completed the Chandrayaan-2 launch rehearsal on Saturday, almost a week after a technical glitch in the launch vehicle interrupted the mission ahead of its launch.

On July 15, the launch was called off 56 minutes and 24 seconds before the scheduled blast off at 1.55 am from the spaceport in Sriharikota following a technical problem in the rocket.

Chandrayaan-2 launch, which was called off due to a technical snag on July 15, 2019, is now rescheduled at 2:43 pm IST on Monday, July 22, 2019, ISRO tweeted on Thursday. It thanked the public for their support, which it said “propels us (ISRO) forth, yet again”.
