The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch the second moon mission, Chandrayaan-2 on July 15, from the Sriharikota Range. Chandrayaan-2 is the first spacecraft that will make a soft landing on Moon's South Pole on September 6, 2019, and will conduct experiments on the lunar terrain with home-grown technology. Last week, ISRO released the first images of the launch vehicle GSLV MK-III M1 along with the images of the Orbiter, Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover on its website.
