10 critical moments in the 9 week Chandrayaan 2 Moon mission of ISRO .. The July 15 2019 mission of Chandryaan 2 was abandoned as a glitch was detected in the spacecraft functioning.

1. Launch to GSLV rocket from Sriharikota 

2. Launch of spacecraft after escaping earths gravity

3. Traveling distance to the moon

4. Entering lunar orbit

5. Drops down and settles in a 100 km altitude lunar orbit

6. Drops the lander with rover

7. Rover has a soft touchdown near lunar South Pole

8. Lander releases the rover

9. Rover steps out to lunar surface 

10. Over 14 days rover does a 200 m *Moonwalk*  ..

And all this is controlled remotely from the ISRO Deep Space Network at Byalalu near Bangalore 3,74,000 km away from lunar surface ..
