India Postpones Moon Lander Launch

Here is a look at the history of the Indias space agency from its inception to the present

The launch of India's second moon mission, Chandrayaan-2, was called off on Monday, after Indian Space Research Orgamisation (Isro) identified a technical snag in the country's heaviest rocket, GSLV Mk-III, nicknamed Baahubali.

The unnamed scientist said, "After filling helium, we found the pressure was dropping, indicating there was a leak".

"Right now, it is not possible to say when the launch can be scheduled". However, the official said that until the reason of the leak is known, chances are high that the problem would re-occur. We should be thankful it was detected way before launch.

At 56.24 minutes from launch, the countdown stop was frozen and a media feed from the control room was cut off. "As a measure of abundant precaution Chandrayaan 2 launch has been called off for today", ISRO Associate Director (Public Relations) B R Guruprasad said in Sriharikota.

Chandrayaan-2 was scheduled to go from India's spaceport at Sriharikota on the eastern shore in Andhra Pradesh state at 2:51 a.m. IST. If not, the propellant will have to be emptied and the rocket disassembled and then reassembled. It would take at least 10 days for the entire process, so it could even take weeks or months for a new date for the mission, which has been pending since 2018.

Attention on the Indian mission had increased as the launch was to be carried out just five days before the 50th anniversary of American Neil Armstrong's history-changing walk on the Moon.

Best most likely the US, China and the faded Soviet Union had been in a region to discontinuance so.

In an earlier statement, an ISRO official said, "We saw Israel's example and we don't want to take any risk". 'The committee is in session.

If successful, Chandrayaan-2 could make India the fourth country to perform a "soft" touch down on the lunar surface, behind the U.S., former Soviet Union, and China-the latter which dropped a rover on the far side of the Moon in January.

However, the success of the lunar mission will escalate the country's future space missions targeting research on Mars and asteroids.

India would have been the fourth country to land a spacecraft on the moon after the United States, Russia, and China.

It is the most powerful rocket developed by ISRO to date.

"I am glad that people at ISRO chose to hold back rather than hurrying into a major disaster". Muthayya, an electronics systems engineer, has been working at ISRO for nearly twenty years and has solid experience in data handling for India's remote sensing satellites with brilliant problem-solving skills. These engines, also used on projects of sending man into space, will be employed by Isro to accomplish Gaganyaan, the mission that plans to send an Indian crew into space, onboard a Made-in-India rocket by 2021.
