I don't think there was ever a launch date mentioned. I don't think the media get pork-chop / tree-ring diagrams. This is the first launch date mentioned, although the window's been mentioned.

Whenever I have seen any kind of timeframe mentioned for this it has usually just said October without any specific date being given.

India's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) spacecraft was shipped out of the city today for the October 28 launch from the Sriharikota spaceport, setting the stage for final preparations for the odyssey to the red planet. "It was put in a special container where we have the monitoring of the environment inside", an official of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) told PTI here. Accompanied by a convoy, the truck-trailer carrying the container is currently on its way by road Sriharikota, where it's slated to reach tomorrow afternoon. Gandhi Jayanti day was chosen for the journey as traffic would be less.

There has been no communication from NASA to ISRO saying that it would not support the Indian mission, sources said.

It's better to verify explicitly, rather than to assume

ISRO should go for dedicated ships to cover blind spots during such missions.

Probably not worth the expense at this time keeping in mind the current frequency of such missions.

Friends whats the official name of the satellite ?

Media is calling it mangalyaan where are there is no mention of the term "mangalyaan" in isro press release.

The people at isro are calling it simply mars orbiter.
