The report added that scientists were "racing to plug the leak" in time for a new launch window at the end of July.
Just before an hour of the launch, a technical snag was observed in the cryogenic stage of the rocket, which is created to provide more thrust for every kilogram of propellant burned.
The Chandrayaan-2 was supposed to leave the Earth behind in the morning on 15th of July, but due to a technical snag still waiting to be discovered by a high-level committee, the launch needed to be re-scheduled. He did not specify what the snag was.
"ISRO has an exceptional success rate when it comes to launching systems". This will require more fuel and likely drive up the cost of the mission.
If that window is missed, the next opportunity for launch will come in September, which will necessitate changing the spacecraft's orbit.
"It was the right decision to call off Chandrayaan 2 launch".
Twitter brings updated desktop version, users not too happy
But it's likely the desktop functionality is tailored to new or casual users, with a focus placed on usability over content. The good news is that since it's a progressive web app , the company can make quick retouches where necessary.

Hong Kong justice secretary due in Beijing on Wednesday amid protests
Some protesters and residents parked upstairs in Sha Tin Centre and Lucky Plaza threw rubbish at the officers on the ground floor. Speaking early yesterday morning, Mr Lo vowed to follow up investigations "to the very end" to bring those behind it to justice.
"As a measure of abundant precaution, Chandrayaan-2 launch has been called off for today", the Indian Space Research Organisation said via Twitter. Among the mission's other scientific objectives are experiments to map the Moon's surface, its mineral and element content, moonquakes and signatures of water-ice on the lunar surface. With Chandrayaan-2, India was hoping to become the fourth nation besides the United States, Russia and China to soft-land on the moon's surface.
The Moon is the closest cosmic body at which space discovery can be attempted and documented. K Sivan, Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation shared that 30% of the members working on the Chandrayaan-2 mission are women. Chandrayaan-2 is also created to find water deposits on the moon as the first Indian lunar mission, Chandrayaan-1, established the existence of water on the satellite while orbiting the cosmic body.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced last year that by the year 2022, India will send a manned mission in space. "It may be a simple thing or complex thing, they'll analyse it". The rover can only communicate with the lander Vikram, which is responsible for transmitting science data to the orbiter. This may sound familiar to those who saw Beresheet's trajectory to the Moon, which needed to save weight in much the same way as India. This is partly because of the difficulties of completing a soft landing on the lunar surface.
The Chandrayaan-2 moon mission was announced June a year ago by ISRO.
Experts said the mission will pave the way for future Indian missions to land on Mars and an asteroid. It has hailed the mission as one of the cheapest in the crowded space race. Each launch mission carries successful satellites. And just like the hero in the hit film by the same name lifted a heavy "lingam", the rocket will carry the 3.8 tonne Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft.
According to mission scientists, global interest in India's low-priced Moon mission is peaking. In 2017, India created history by successfully launching 104 satellites on a single mission, overtaking the previous record of 37 satellites launched by Russian Federation.
