Besides the mission to the moon, “Chandrayan 1”, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch “an orbiting astronomical observatory” and a specialised satellite for climate studies, ISRO Chairman G Madhavan Nair said on Sunday.

November – PSLV – X-Sat – SDSC

Insat-3D has slipped into 2007/08 ( http://www.isro.org/rep2006/Communication.htm )
X-Sat is a piggy-back payload an will fly with a primay payload on a PSLV
Tecsar, as said earlier has also slipped into 2007
LAPAN-TUBSAT has taken the place of Anusat

so this leaves probably 4 launches in 2006

A recent article in The Hindu announces the next two launches to be INSAT-4C/GSLV in July and Cartosat 2/PSLV in August.

http://www.hindu.com/2006/06/04/stories/2006060400051100.htm

Does anyone know what happened to that AGILE/PSLV launch previously announced for this spring?

Official launch (from the Second Launch Pad) date and time is July, 10th at 11:00 UT.
A lot of informations (including press kit) and pictures are on the ISRO site:

According to: http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/181_1742972,00040005.htm next launch of PSLV with Cartosat 2, SRE-1 and Lapan-TubSat is planned between October and December. No word about launch of Agile - possibly slip to 2007.

Any images or video from the last GSLV launch? I only have a few small resolution images.

Here is a nice collage of several phases of the failed launch:

Info on the Indonesian Piggyback payload on the next PSLV mission on this link

highlights
Weighing about 57 kgs, the first stage satellite is much lighter than the US-made Palapa satellite weighing around 400 kgs.

The manufacturing of the micro satellite the design of which was done by German experts had been completed and the satellite had also been taken to Isro in India to be launched together with India`s satellite "Cartosat-2".

As to the cost, LAPAN only spent about Rp10 billion on its manufacturing in Indonesia
