ISRO Chandrayaan 2 launch Live: India's second moon mission Chandrayaan-2 will be launched today by using the heavy-lift launch vehicle GSLV-Mark-3.
This powerful rocket, popularly known as 'Bahubali', is working in a normal way. From this, Chandrayaan-2 will be launched from Satish Dhawan Space Center of Sriharikota on July 22 at 2:43 pm.
