India has successfully launched its second unmanned mission to the moon.

The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft is set to land on the lunar south pole in September and send a rover to explore water deposits that were confirmed by a previous mission that orbited the moon.

The first scheduled launch on 15th July was called off less than an hour before liftoff due to a technical problem.
