A leak in the helium bottle of the cryogenic engine of GSLV-MkIII forced the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) to abort the launch of Chandrayaan-2 early on Monday. The launch was called off just 56 minutes before the scheduled lift-off at 2.51am.
While Isro officially confirmed “a technical snag” in GSLV-MkIII, five sources independently confirmed to TOI that the launch was put off because of a leak in the cryogenic stage. “As a measure of abundant precaution, Chandrayaan-2 launch has been called off for today. Revised launch date will be announced later,” Isro tweeted.
