After a long wait, Chandrayaan-2 was successfully launched on July 22, 2019, at 2:43 p.m. from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh by ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation). Chandrayaan-2 mission, which was earlier aborted due to a technical snag, makes India the fourth country to pull off a soft landing on the moon after US, Russia and China.

People have taken to Twitter to commend the successful launch of the second moon mission of India. Celebrities, ministers including honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi have tweeted inc celebration, extending their support to ISRO's efforts.

There's always room for some humour to add onto the feeling of success:

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scientists, who aborted the previous launch with 56 minutes left for the countdown to end on July 15, have taken quick remedial action based on an analysis carried out by a team set up to look into the snag and announced the rescheduled launch three days ago. A 20-hour countdown for the launch began at 6.43pm Sunday, ISRO announced.
