India’s Moon mission Chandrayaan-2 was quite a feat.

However, it was a disappointment when India’s Moon mission to the unexplored south polar region of Earth’s natural satellite was called off due to a technical snag.

Chandrayaan-2 was supposed to launch early morning on July 15, but a technical glitch forced the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) to call off the launch. Later, it was launched on July 22.
