Sriharikota: The rehearsal launch of India’s lunar space satellite Chandrayaan 2, was completed successfully last night at the Satish Dhawan Space Center yesterday. The 20-hour countdown started today. It will be launched tomorrow at 2.43pm.
Chandrayaan, slated to launch on July 15, was postponed at the last minute due to technical reasons. The countdown for the launch of the GSLV Mach 3 M1 rocket started at 6.43 pm today. The rocket’s refueling work will begin soon after the countdown. The launch of the soft landing on the Moon is scheduled for September 6, seven days late than the launch date.
