Millions of Indians will keep a close eye as Indian Space Research Organisation’s (Isro) most ambitious mission Chandrayaan-2 will attempt to land on the moon’s south pole early on Saturday.
If successful, the Rs 978 crore mission will make India only the fourth country to land a spacecraft on the moon and the first to explore its south pole.
