Curtain raiser video (English)

https://www.isro.gov.in/pslv-c40-cartosat-2-series-satellite-mission/pslv-c40-cartosat-2-series-satellite-mission-curtain-0
The curtain raiser video feels better this time with subtitles and statements directly from various Centre directors (Arianespace style?). However it would have been more appropriate if they had provided English subtitles for SAC Director, Mr Tapan Mishra (who typically prefers to speak in Hindi) in the English version of the video.

Countdown begins for ISRO’s 100th satellite launch

Quote
The 28-hour countdown for the launch of ISRO’s 100th satellite along with 30 others in a single mission, from the space port of Sriharikota, about 110 km from here, began today. On its 42nd mission, the Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) trusted workhorse ‘PSLV-C40’ will carry the weather observation ‘Cartosat-2’ series satellite and 30 co-passengers (together weighing about 613 kg) at lift-off at 9.28 am tomorrow.

As the Mission Readiness Review committee and Launch Authorisation Board cleared the countdown, the space body today said, “The 28-hour countdown activity of PSLV-C40/Cartosat2 Series Satellite Mission has started at 05.29 hours IST today". At present, the scientists are involved in propellant filling operation to carry out various stages of the flight, it said.

Quote
The entire launch of satellites is expected to happen over a period of 2 hours and 21 seconds, it said. According to ISRO, the Cartosat-2 series satellite launch is a follow-on mission with the primary objective of providing high resolution scene-specific spot imageries. It carries panchromatic and multi-spectral cameras operating in Time Delay Integration mode and is capable of delivering high resolution data.
