Chandrayaan-2, India’s most ambitious lunar mission yet, is all set to be launched on Monday.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch the mission from Sriharikota at 2:51 am on Monday with an aim to place a robotic rover on the moon. The mission aims a detailed study on understanding of the origin and evolution of the Moon, according to ISRO. The Chandrayaan-2 would be carried by the GSLVMkIII, dubbed ‘Fat Boy’ by Indian scientists for its ability to carry satellites weighing upto 4-tonnes.
Ahead of the launch, ISRO took to Twitter to ask Indians what they would take to the moon if given a chance.
While the answers ranged from books, mobile phones to protein bars, the most common answer was the Indian flag. Some others also wanted to carry “desh ki mitti” to the moon.
