 What is the height of the orbit of the OneWeb satellites?  Sorry, I missed it, if it was mentioned earlier.  Added: okay I found out it is 1200km.

The launch orbit is lower. About 450-475 km at the Soyuz launches. The satellites climb to 1200 km with their own engines.

Tomorrow an Indian GSLV-Mk III rocket will launch 36 satellites of the #OneWeb constellation from the Satish Dhawan Space Center.

Wonderful!   Very eagerly, but also somewhat apprehensively, awaiting this launch tomorrow!  Any reports at all of a brewing storm in the Bay of Bengal, possibly causing a delay. Perhaps the storm won't significantly affect the space port :-\

Does anyone managed to get the press kit for this mission? I'm trying to search on the new ISRO homepage, but cannot find it.

not clear how "velocity addition" is done after C25 shut off.
is the cryogenic stage re-start able?
or is it just the attitude control thrusters being used for delta v addition.

What's LVM3?
Is ISRO renaming rockets like they are renaming remote sensing satellite into EOS naming convention?

LVM3 is an alternate name for GSLV Mk.III. Its been in use since the beginning of the program.

... each time a GSLV MK.III doesn't target geosynchronous orbit, since "GSLV" stands for "Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle".

We've also seen this renaming for Chandrayaan 2.

We’re now under six hours from lift-off, so there’s no better time to reflect on Launch #14’s mission patch.

This patch reflects Indian culture, its ethos, and its spirit of winning. We are proud to be building universal connections from Indian soil.

 The latest total mass of the 36 satellites is given as 5796kg, on the ISRO page. Whereas we've seen other figures like 5.3, 5.4 and even 6 tonnes.   Is this latest accurate?  I guess it will be revealed soon enough! :)
