Mumbai: Less than hour before the scheduled blastoff of India’s second mission to the Moon on Monday, ISRO called off the launch of Chandrayaan-2.
ISRO said the countdown was stopped 56 minutes before the launch as an “abundant precaution” after a “technical snag” was observed in the launch vehicle system.
Many took to Twitter to cheer up the space agency.
Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow lunar eclipse will happen, so rocket can't see the moon on these days.— Prabu D (@duplexprabu) July 14, 2019
It is good that you stopped the process. Otherwise rocket will land in some other milky solar system.#Chandrayaan2 #LunarEclipsehttps://t.co/0dTwLeJ75J
This is the star position👇 at 2.51am and not allowed in astrology for any new work for success!— 🇮🇳Rakesh Sharma🇮🇳 (@RakeshS21201943) July 15, 2019
Main reason behind the delay of#Chandrayaan2theMoon#Chandrayan2
8rh moon with Ketu and Saturn
Very bad position!
And sun is with Rahu and venus!

Technical issues are generated naturally for achieving the minutest perfections before taking a big step!— Veer Patel (@patelveer2687) July 14, 2019
Proud to see @isro & it's team of experts, scientists & technicians taking the right decision in the welfare of a bright & smart India! #JaiHind🇮🇳 #Bahubali #Chandrayaan2
Thats the main reason for the success of @isro because they count, calculate and observe every minute of their mission. So that mission can complete in one attempt. Many congratulations for detecting the defect during #Chandrayaan2 which say many things in itself.— Manish kumar singh (@singhmanish056) July 14, 2019
