India: ISRO set to launch Chandrayaan 2 moon mission

With Chandrayaan 2, India is preparing to ‘boldly go where no country has ever gone before.

‘ That’s in the words of the country’s ISRO space agency as it preps India’s mission to the moon, which aims to land a rover near the moon’s unexplored South Pole with its Vikram lander.

The mission will analyze minerals, search for water and map the surface.

And ahead of the launch, there’s considerable excitement across the country.
