Moon

According to ISRO, Chandrayaan 2 — India's second lunar expedition — will shed light on a completely unexplored section of the Moon — its South Polar region.

ISRO has said it will carry out the manoeuvre called Trans Lunar Insertion at around 3.30 A.M. IST. Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft is expected to reach the moon's orbit on 20th of August.

On July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to step on the lunar surface and experience the "giant leap for mankind". CBS is promising the thrilling mission, complete with commercials from half a century ago, Engadget reports.

Chandrayaan-2 will explore a region of moon where no mission has ever set foot. The landing site of the mission, at about 70 degrees south latitude, is the southernmost for any mission till date. No country has attempted this before.
