Launched from Sriharikota, Chandrayaan-2 is happily orbiting in space. Sriharikota is an island in the Bay of Bengal, off the coast of Andhra Pradesh. It is separated from the mainland by an expanse of brackish water-the Pulicat Lake. The island houses the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, which provides the infrastructure for launching satellites. Sriharikota is thus also called the spaceport of India. It has two rocket launchers-polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) and geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV). The island doesn’t have much else besides the space centre.
