Dr K Sivan, Chairman of the Indian space agency, widely known as the Rocket Man of India, celebrates the successful lunar capture of the Chandrayaan-2 satellite while holding a scale model of the spacecraft at a press meet on August 20, 2019 in Bengaluru. India is headed to the South Pole region of the moon where no other country has ever landed before and expects to soft land on the moon on September 7, 2019. The Indian robotic satellite consists of an orbiter, a lander called Vikram and a moon rover called Pragyaan.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) employees react as they watch the live broadcast of the soft landing of spacecraft Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-2 on the surface of the Moon at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) centre in Bangalore early on September 7, 2019. - India lost communication with its unmanned spacecraft on September 7 just before it was due to land on the Moon, in a major setback to the country's lunar ambitions amid renewed interest in Earth's satellite.
The Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) Chandrayaan-2 (Moon Chariot 2), with on board the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-mark III-M1), launches at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, an island off the coast of southern Andhra Pradesh state, on July 22, 2019. India launched a bid to become a leading space power on July 22, sending up a rocket to put a craft on the surface of the Moon in what it called a "historic day" for the nation.

Women engineers concentrate in testing the electronic of the Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft at The Indian Space Research Organisation or ISRO is putting finishing touches to India's moon-shot called Chandrayaan-2 or vehicle to the Moon. In an audacious attempt India seeks to land near the South Pole of the moon a never before feat.The spacecraft which includes an orbitter, lander and rover is being readied in a clean room of the ISRO Satellite Center.
Madhavan Nair, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in Bangalore looks at a model of the Indian moon mission spaceship Chandrayaan-I that is to be launched in 2007. The Indian government has given the go ahead to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to launch a mission to the moon named Chandrayaan-I (The first journey to the moon) in September 2007. The misson, with a cost under US$ 100 million, will put a remote sensing satellite in a 100 kilometer orbit. India will also put a probe on the surface moon. The satellite and launcher will be Indian and will carry 10 kilogram of foreign payloads.

India's Moon rocket, the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV C-11) on its launch pad and ready to take India's maiden mooncraft to the lunar orbit. The countdown has literally begun for the launch of India's maiden satellite to the moon. Named Chandrayaan-1 or Moon Craft 1 it has now been fully integrated and will be launched from the country's space port Sriharikota to be hoisted moon wards. This will make India the sixth country in the world to attempt such a challenging mission. Chandrayaan-1 is an unmanned scientific satellite and in its two year life it will map the lunar surface in detail like never before and also search for water. In a unique experiment it will also attempt to place India's tricolor flag on the moon surface through a special impactor probe.
