ISRO will launch PSLV-C42 on September 16th at 10.07pmhttps://telugu.samayam.com/latest-news/india-news/isro-will-launch-pslv-c42-on-september-16/articleshow/65739252.cms
Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) Chairman Sivan K on Wednesday said that the space agency has set itself a target of December 2021 for the launch of the human spaceflight programme which is more ambitious than the 2022 deadline set by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Before this, Isro will have to carry out a series of critical tests, including two unmanned missions—in December 2020 and June 2021—inflight abort test of the crew module among others.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) will launch its second moon mission ‘Chandrayaan-2’ carrying an orbiter on January 3 next year. It will be launched by GSLV-MK-III.Isro chairman K Sivan said it is going to be hectic days ahead for the organisation. "We will have series of launches-18 missions in the next six months. These include GSLV-MkIII-D2/GSAT-29 Mission, scheduled to be launched in December 2018, and Chandrayaan-2, that will be launched on January 3.
ISRO Chairman wrapping up. GSAT 11 on 4 December and Chandrayaan 2 on 3 January.

It will be launched by GSLV-MK-III.Isro chairman K Sivan said it is going to be hectic days ahead for the organisation. "We will have series of launches-18 missions in the next six months. These include GSLV-MkIII-D2/GSAT-29 Mission, scheduled to be launched in December 2018, and Chandrayaan-2, that will be launched on January 3.
The GSAT-29 which is classified as a high throughput satellite will be launched on board the GSLV MK3-D2. The October launch of the GSLV MK3 is the second one involving ISRO’s heaviest launch vehicle.
"India has the world's second largest internet user base. But, our present broadband speed is 76th in the world. Isro has already launched GSAT-19 in June 2017. This year, Isro will launch GSAT-11 and GSAT-29 and early next year, GSAT-20 will be launched. All these are high throughput satellites and together they will provide more than 100 Gbps high bandwidth connectivity across the country which will help bridge the digital divide," said Sivan while addressing the convocation as the chief guest.
The primary defense satellites are GSAT 7 which went into orbit in 2013. This Satellite caters to the requirements of the Navy. In 2018, GSAT 7A will be operationalised which is primarily an IAF satellite, with 30 per cent stake of the Army. Thereafter, GSAT 7B is planned, which will be primarily an Army satellite.
IAF will get another satellite, GSAT-7C, within a couple of years to boost its network-centric operations.
ISRO will use its GSLV Mk-III launch vehicle, which can carry the heavier payload of the Gaganyaan, and this will take off from the new launch pad.In addition to the third launch pad at Sriharikota, ISRO is also scouting for a new location near Gujarat for the SSLV.
Isro chairman K Sivan told TOI, “The launch of four high-throughput satellites will provide the country broadband connectivity of over 100 gigabits per second (Gbps) by next year. Gsat-19 was already launched in June last year, Gsat-29 will be launched by November and Gsat-11 (Isro’s heaviest satellite weighing over 5.7 tonnes) will be launched from French Guiana by December. The launch of Gsat-20 has been scheduled next year.”
Isro now looking at January 30 for Chandrayaan-2 launchTNN | Oct 4, 2018, 08.14 PM ISTBENGALURU: January 30, and not January 3 as Isro had earlier indicated, will be the most optimal date for the launch of Chandrayaan-2, India’s second mission to the Moon....TOI has reliably learnt that the committee looked at January 3, January 30, and February 14. After all deliberations, it was said: “January 30 will be a good option for Chandrayaan-2 launch since there is a 27 kg propellant advantage with respect to January 3 launch.”
Prof George Joseph, chair of the advisory committee on space science (ADCOS) of Isro....The project is named DISHA, for Disturbed and quiet-type Ionosphere System at High Altitude, and will involve twin satellites orbiting the Earth at an altitude of 450 km, he added.
According to local media launch is set for November 27th from first launch pad. HySIS (Main payload) has already reached shar. Source: http://www.andhrabhoomi.net/content/nation-8122
Yup things should start picking up now. D2 Mission - November 14th C43 Mission - November 27th GSAT-11 via Ariane 5 - December 5th Mk-2 F11 Mission - Late December (Maybe. Launch campaign started few days ago at newly built SVAB)
