Chandrayaan 2, an ambitious second lunar mission in India, was shaken in the early hours of July 15 after a technical hitch forced the Indian space research organization to cancel the launch for the time being. ISRO's goal was to reach the southern pole of the moon where no country had gone before.

A technical problem was observed in the launch system one hour before launch. As a precautionary measure, the launch of Chandrayaan 2 has been canceled for today. The revised launch date will be announced later, "tweeted ISRO. President Ram Nath Kovind flew to Sriharikota to attend the launch.

Confusion reigned in the media center as the countdown stopped with 56.24 minutes for takeoff. Mission control announced that the countdown had been delayed. "It is not possible to launch the launch in the launch window. A new schedule will be announced later, "said Mission Control.
ISRO had a launch window that ends July 16 for launch during this period. The launch of Chandrayaan 2 has suffered many setbacks, with ISRO having missed many deadlines since 2018. It was planned to launch it in a window between January and mid-February this year, but was postponed again.
ISRO finally announced the current launch window and its president, K. Sivan, told The Hindu that the launch window was final and would be full. But that too collapsed in the early hours of July 15th.
