Themission, comprising a lunar orbiter, lander and rover, intends to map out the locations and abundance of lunar water. It will keep its date with the moon on September 6, 2019.

The three-component spacecraft will take 48 days to accomplish its task and is billed as the most-prestigious mission by ISRO. When Chandraayan 2 lands on the moon, India will become only the fourth country after the US, Russia and China to soft land on lunar surface.
