About an hour before its scheduled launch on Monday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) called off the country”s ambitious Rs 978 crore moon landing mission Chandrayaan-2 due to a technical snag in the ”Bahubali” rocket
“It is not possible to make the launch within the launch window. The revised launch schedule will be announced later,” an official announced from the Mission Control Centre.
Minutes before making this announcement, the officials put on the countdown on hold.
At that point of time, the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mk III) rocket was fully fueled up.
