About Chandrayaan 2 launch time and date

Chandrayaan 2 was earlier scheduled to launch on the 14th of July 2019 at 21:21 UT (15th July 02:51 IST) but is now scheduled to launch at 2:43 pm on the 22nd of July, 2019.

ISRO initially planned to partner Chandrayaan-2 with Russia. In 2007, both the agencies even signed an agreement to launch the orbiter and lander in 2013, but, Russia pulled out of the agreement. Russia’s lander construction was delayed after their failure of Roscosmos’ Phobos- Grunt Mission to the Martian moon of Phobos in December, 2011. Russia pulled out of Chandrayaan-2 citing financial issues. There were also reports that stated that NASA and the European Space Agency were both interested in participating but ISRO anyway proceeded with their mission all by themselves.

The Chandrayaan-2 Lander and Rover are targeted for a location of around 600 kilometers from the south pole. It is the first time that any mission would touch down the equator so far down. ISRO is planning to experience more challenging missions in the future like touching down on an asteroid (MARS) or sending a spacecraft to Venus for which this is going to be a start.

The lander is expected to last for around one lunar day which is almost 14 earth days. It is not even clear if it will revive after falling into the darkness of the lunar night. The measurements from the moonquakes could provide more data  after the information collected by the human Apollo missions in 1960s and 70s.

The Terrain explored by the rover is of great scientific interest because of the rock’s old age. It is known to be 4 billion years old and scientists say that the zone likely composed of an ancient magma ocean. The measurements taken by Chandrayaan-2 could help in any lunar missions in the future.
