ISRO said Saturday it has completed the launch rehearsal of GSLV Mark III-M1, the launch vehicle of Chandrayaan 2, and its performance is normal.
After aborting the second Indian mission to Moon on July 15, an hour before the take-off, ISRO has said it would go ahead with the mission on July 21.
"Launch rehearsal of #GSLVMkIII-M1 #Chandrayaan2 mission completed, performance normal #ISRO," he said.
The launch of Chandrayaan 2, aimed at landing a rover on the unexplored Lunar South Pole, was aborted early on July 15 due to a "technical snag" in the rocket.
The snag had occurred when the liquid propellant was being loaded into the rocket's indigenous cryogenic upper-stage engine.
Veteran scientists had heaped praise on ISRO for calling off the launch rather hurrying into a major disaster.
