India's second lunar mission Chandrayaan-2 will be launched on a day between 9 and 16 July this year.

Following the setback, the ISRO grew cautious about its missions to ensure there was no failure. Subsequently, the Lander will separate from the Orbiter and land softly at the predetermined site, close to the lunar South Pole.

ISRO statement said, "All the modules are getting ready for Chandrayaan 2 launch during between July 09, to July 17, 2019, with an expected Moon landing on September 06, 2019".

The Chandrayaan 2 mission was earlier scheduled for previous year but was then delayed multiple times to conduct further tests on the vehicle and change a few configurations.

Earlier, Chandrayaan 2 was to be launched between March 25 and April end. "The rover is housed inside the lander", it added.

"We are ready for one of the most exciting missions, #Chandrayaan2".

The Orbiter and Lander will be stacked inside the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle MK-III launch vehicle.

Once landed, the rover will then take charge and carry out scientific experiments on the Moon's surface itself. It is also to demonstrate the ability to soft-land on the lunar surface and operate a robotic rover on the surface. Israeli spacecraft, Beresheet crashed during moon landing on April 11.

The mission will be launched on a GSLV Mk-III rocket from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Andhra Pradesh's Sriharikota, Mint reported.

"The satellite will first be launched into an earth orbit from where it will slowly increase and move towards the moon. The payloads will collect scientific information on lunar topography, mineralogy, elemental abundance, lunar exosphere, and signatures of hydroxyl and water-ice".

Just like Chandrayaan-1 and Mars Orbiter Mission, the Chandrayaan-2 will also perform orbit raising manoeuvres around the Earth six times to gain the required height and speed to break away from the Earth's gravity.
