BENGALURU (Reuters) – India’s space agency said on Thursday it would launch the country’s second lunar mission on July 22, after the original launch was called off due to a ‘technical snag’ earlier this week.

Chandrayaan-2, built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), is now scheduled to be launched at 0913 GMT (1443 IST) on July 22, ISRO said in a tweet https://twitter.com/isro/status/1151727440667893760.
