Hey Space Placers!
Here is an NBC News story on India's next Moon mission, Chandrayaan-2.
It is scheduled for launch between July 9 and 16. The lander and rover are scheduled to land near the South Pole, a very interesting region of the Moon that has never been explored by a lander/rover. It is known to harbor frozen water ice in a likely mix with the lunar soil in permanently shadowed craters.
India's first lunar mission, Chandrayaan-1 was very successful. Let's hope Chandrayaan-2 is as well.
