RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN India's space agency was set to launch the Chandrayaan-2 lunar mission from Satish Dhawan Space Center on July 15 before the mission was aborted due to a technical error, reports India Today.

This would have been India's second moon mission, the Times of India reports.

The Indian Space Agency said they will announce a new launch date.

The mission's spacecraft comprises of a lander, a rover and an orbiter, the Indian Space Research Organization or ISRO.

The rover is to be housed within the lander.

The orbiter will be carrying items such as a terrain mapping camera, a solar X-ray monitor, an imaging IR spectrometer and a dual-frequency synthetic aperture radar.

The lander will include an instrument for lunar seismic activity and a thermal probe.

While the rover will carry an X-ray spectrometer and a laser-induced breakdown spectroscope.

The orbiter and the lander will separate once the spacecraft has reached the moon's orbit.

The lander will attempt a soft-landing between two lunar craters, according to the ISRO.

Once on the moon's surface, the rover will be able to move around semi-autonomously.

It will analyze the moon's surface and send data to the lander.

The lander will then relay information to the orbiter and to earth, according to the ISRO.
