Countdown of India’s Chandrayaan-2 has started. Sivan, Chief of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), confirmed this. He said that on the Sunday evening of India’s second ship sent to the Moon, countdown began at 6.43 pm. First Chandrayaan-2 was to be launched on July 15.
But an hour before launching, it was stopped after detecting technical flaws. It will now be launched on July 22 at 2.43 pm. ISRO said that the technical breakdown in Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark-3 (GSLV Mark-3) has been corrected.
Chandrayaan-2 is India’s second most ambitious moon mission. This will be launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota with heavy rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark 3 (GSLV Mk3). GSLV is also called ‘Bahubali’. This rocket weighs 44 meters long and weighs 640 tonnes. It has a 3.8 tonne moonlight.
The earth and the moon are about 3.844 kilometers away. After a few minutes of flight, the GSLV-Mark-3 rocket of Rs 375 crores will set up Chandrayaan-II of Earth in the orbit of Rs 603 crores. The journey to the moon will begin. Chandrayaan-2 will go to Lander Vikram and Rover Pragyan Chand. Lander Vikram will reach the moon in September or October and after that, he will start the work of knowledge.
During the countdown, the systems of rocket and spacecraft will undergo testing and will be fueled in rocket engines. So far ISRO has sent 3 GSLV-MK3 rockets. The first rocket was sent on December 18, 2014, the second on February 5, 2017 and the third on November 14, 2018. GSLV-MK3 will be used for the human space mission of India, which is set for the year 2022.
