Explained: Chandrayaan 2, India’s second mission to the moon

A little more than a decade after Chandrayaan-1, ISRO is preparing itself for its second lunar expedition with more resources, technological prowess and a more ambitious goal. On July 15th, Chandrayaan-2, India’s second lunar mission will launch. If the mission is successful, India will become the fourth country to soft land on the moon- after the US, erstwhile USSR and China. Amitabh Sinha, our Resident Editor in Pune who writes on issues related to science and environment, joins us over call to unpack the significance and complexity of Chandrayaan 2, what information scientists will try to glean from it and what is next in India’s lunar ambitions.
