This event will help India become the fourth country after China, the United States and Russia to fulfill the mission to explore the Moon.

The spacecraft called Chandrayaan-2 consists of orbiting equipment, landing ships and self-propelled equipment.

This is the second moon exploration ship of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) after the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft was first launched in 2008.

Under the plan, Chandrayaan-2 will be launched on the Sriharikota space center in southwestern India on July 15 and scheduled to land at the South Pole of the Moon on September 6.

ISRO said the funding for this mission is estimated at 10 billion rupees ($ 144 million).

In recent years, India has made great strides in its exploration of space. In 2013, India launched a spacecraft to Mars.

In 2017, the country successfully launched 104 satellites with just one rocket.
