Folks,
I have tickets for the launch & I cant find any instructions on ISRO website except a route map to Visitor Launch Gallery. I have some questions would appreciate some inputs.

Since the launch is at 2.51am local time, when should I reach the venue? & when can I expect to leave, have to get back to work on Monday so would help me plan.  If anyone has any inputs would appreciate it.

If there are any last minute changes to launch what can I track to get latest information? NSF Live blog is one place, anything else?

Does the launch gallery have a TV with live streaming etc?

Thanks,

Online Satori

Chandrayaan 2: Giant leap for ISRO

I've added US$ conversions.

"The cost of the entire mission is about Rs.1,000 crore ($146M). This includes Rs.603 crore ($88M) for building the composite module and the payment to agencies abroad for providing tracking and navigation support to ISRO. The cost of building the GSLV-Mk III is around Rs.375 crore ($55M)."

Do we know if there is a to-the-second time for the this launch?  Or is it 21:21:00 UTC?

That's about as accurate as I've read anywhere.

Meanwhile, more coverage:

Launch Kit screenshots + PDF attached

It's a shame they no longer do the standard launch brochures anymore.

I think the launch kit technically constitutes as a mission brochure.

No there is a difference. The launch kit is typically for internal ISRO employees/technical staff whereas the brochure is for general public. The launch kit is done well this time around but normally it is not so user friendly as it is not meant for general public.
