"The launch window is from July 9 to July 16 with an expected Moon landing on September 6", ISRO said in an update on the mission, which was earlier scheduled for April launch.

The Indian Space Research Organization on Wednesday declared that India's second mission to the moon will be launched between July 9 and 16 and that it is expected to land on September 6. The moon landing is likely to be around September 6, 2019, almost two months after the launch.

Health officials urge parents to get children vaccinated
Although no cases of measles have been reported in Bermuda since 1990, the threat of a case being imported to the island remains. The state recommends health care workers and college students receive two doses, or provide evidence of immunity.


Chandrayaan-2 was scheduled to be launched in April past year, but it was postponed to October after ISRO lost contact with GSAT-6A in March 2018.

The Chandrayaan 2 will be the first ever mission in the world to explore the South Pole of the moon. The Rover will be housed in the lander.

Trump and Putin spoke by phone, discussed Mueller report
Trump and Putin also discussed North Korea and Pyongyang's talks with the USA over giving up its nuclear weapons. It was, Sanders said, a "positive" conversation.


The mission would land on the southern pole of the moon, which has not been explored much before by any of the countries. The Orbiter and Lander modules will be interfaced mechanically and stacked together as an integrated module and accommodated inside the GSLV MK-III launch vehicle. It is also to demonstrate the ability to soft-land on the lunar surface and operate a robotic rover on the surface. "Once it gets into the lunar orbit and stabilises, the orbit will be reduced slowly to take the payload to a suitable window for decent to the surface", said an Isro official on condition of anonymity. China's spacecraft was the only one to land on the other side of the Moon that has never seen the face of the Earth, ever. The landing of 3,290-kg Chandrayaan-2 craft will be much more hard than Israel's Beresheet.

After taking off from Earth, on board the GSLV Mk 2I launcher, a Lander - named Vikram - on board Chandrayaan-2 will make a soft landing on the Moon's surface. The data would be relayed to earth. However, the mission that lasted 312 days had successfully completed 95% of it's planned objectives.
