Non-building of sufficient pressure in the helium tanks in the ”Bahubali” rocket could be the reason for calling off the moon landing mission Chandrayaan-2 one hour before the rocket”s take off, said two retired official of Indian space organisation.
The rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mk III) was supposed to lift off at 2.51 a.m. on Monday with India”s second moon mission spacecraft Chandrayaan-2.
“A technical snag was observed in launch vehicle system one hour before the launch. As a measure of abundant precaution, #Chandrayaan2 launch has been called off for today. Revised launch date will be announced later,” ISRO tweeted and didn”t elaborate further.
