Over two years after its second Moon mission had a fatal end on the lunar  surface, ISRO is set to  launch Chandrayaan-3 in August this year.

The timeline was released by the Department of Space in response to  questions around the delay of the Moon mission in the Lok Sabha.

The Department in a written response said that based on the  lessons from the Chandrayaan-2 mission and suggestions from global  experts, work is underway on Chandrayaan-3.

The department further said that it has completed the required tests and the launch is scheduled for August 2022.

The Chandrayaan-3 mission takes cues from the first Chandrayaan mission launched in October 2008 that made  major discoveries.

 Even first Chandrayaan mission Discovered Water Evidence On lunar surface.

The third moon mission comes two years after the Chandrayaan-2 crash-landed on the far side of the Moon.

While the lander and the rover crashed, the orbiter is still hovering  above the lunar surface and Isro plans to use it with Chandrayaan-3 as  well.

Department of Space has planned 19 missions to be launched in 2022 .

During the year, Isro will liftoff 08 launch vehicle missions, 07 spacecraft missions, and 04 technology demonstrator missions.
