Mission Chandrayaan 2: Every Indian is immensely proud today, says PM Modi on successful launch
India witnessed another historic moment when the rocket carrying Chandrayaan 2 lifted off from its launch pad at Andhra Pradesh's Sriharikota at 14:43 hours on July 22.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's while congratulating ISRO in his message said, "Special moments that will be etched in the annals of our glorious history! The launch of Chandrayaan 2 illustrates the prowess of our scientists and the determination of 130 crore Indians to scale new frontiers of science. Every Indian is immensely proud today!"

"Indian at heart, Indian in spirit! What would make every Indian overjoyed is the fact that Chandrayaan 2 is a fully indigenous mission. It will have an Orbiter for remote sensing the Moon and also a Lander-Rover module for analysis of lunar surface," he added.

He expressed, "Chandrayaan 2 is unique because it will explore and perform studies on the south pole region of lunar terrain which is not explored and sampled by any past mission. This mission will offer new knowledge about the Moon."

"Efforts such as Chandrayaan 2 will further encourage our bright youngsters towards science, top quality research and innovation. Thanks to Chandrayaan, India's Lunar Programme will get a substantial boost. Our existing knowledge of the Moon will be significantly enhanced," he hoped.
