The Indian Space Research Organisation(ISRO) has made arrangments for the visitors who want to see the lift-off PSLV-C47 which will be carrying Cartosat-3 and 13 Nanosatellites of USA from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 0928 hours IST on 25 Nov, 2019.


ISRO will develop lawns with photo points and a fountain will be realised at the middle of the rocket garden. The Space Port of India naturally attracts the visitors to witness the launch activities. At present, there are no appropriate facilities for accommodating more number of visitors to view the launch at Sriharikota.

This would allow thousands of viewers to witness the launch. A space museum provides a tell-tale account of the Indian Space Programme from its infancy. The story of the Indian Space Programme is unfurled in six sections, comprising of history, education, technology, applications, global and the future.

"PSLV-C47 set to launch Cartosat-3 and 13 Nanosatellites of USA from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 0928 hours IST on Nov 25, 2019, subject to weather conditions. Updates will continue" the space organisation said on its official Twitter handle.

India's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, PSLV-C47 will launch Cartosat-3 and 13 commercial nanosatellites into Sun Synchronous orbit.

Cartosat-3 satellite is a third-generation agile advanced satellite having high-resolution imaging capability. The satellite will be placed in an orbit of 509 km at an inclination of 97.5 degrees.

PSLV-C47 will also carry 13 commercial nanosatellites from the United States of America as part of a commercial arrangement with NewSpace India Limited (NSIL), Department of Space.
