Jul 18, 2019

Three days after calling off launch of Chandrayaan-2 owing to a technical glitch, ISRO has come up with a new date for the mission to commence. 

ISRO communicated that Chandrayaan-2 will be launched at at 2:43 pm on Monday, July 22, 2019. 

 On July 15, amidst air of expectancy at Srikarikota where even the President of India was present, ISRO called off the launch just 56 minutes ahead of the due date.

 The ISRO was sketchy s to what may have caused the glitch that occurred when liquid propellant was being loaded into the rocket's indigenous cryogenic upper stage engine. 

 Scientists were tightlipped with the problem in the heavylift GSLV Mk-III rocket carrying the satellite that put a halt to the ambitious Rs 976 crore lunar mission because of the last-minute hurdle.

 “A technical snag was observed in the launch vehicle system at t-minus 56 minutes. As a measure of abundant precaution Chandrayaan 2 launch has been called off for today,” ISRO Associate Director (Public Relations) B R Guruprasad said. 

 ISRO had earlier scheduled the launch in the first week of January but shifted it to July 15.
