India's Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has announced the July launch window for its next mission to the Moon - Chandrayaan-2 - which will include an orbiter and India’s first soft lander and rover.
Touchdown is scheduled for September 6 at -71 S latitude making this the farthest south lander ever.
If successful India will become the fourth country to soft land on the Moon - US, USSR, China have done so so far.
The landing area is also where Russia plans to land Luna 24 at some point in the future.
The Moon beckons.....
