As per the recent updates, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is doing its last preps for launching 29 satellites in one mission by PSLV-45 (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) in its 47th flight.

The bunch of satellites to be launched will include one Indian surveillance satellite (Emisat) and 28 small foreign satellites of countries namely Switzerland, US, Spain, Lithuania.

The new thing this time is that they have invited common citizens to watch the launch event live for the very first time in the organisation's history.

For accommodating the people came to watch the spectacular launch events a special stadium type viewing gallery has been constructed which can lodge nearly 5,000 people. Along with it, a rocket garden and space museum is also erected.

In fact, the viewing gallery is located on such a location which faces two launch sites at the same time. ISRO shared the glimpse of the viewing gallery on twitter:

The stadium will be opened only for Indian citizens above 10 yrs and they should be registered on ISRO's website first. After registering they will get an entry pass (should be printed) to enter the island.

As per the Chairman Mr K Srivan's statement this time the mission also aims to place satellites in three different orbits in a single go. This is for the first time that ISRO is attempting this type of targets, to reduce the launch costs.

The main satellite in the flight is DRDO's EMISAT an intelligence (strategic) low Earth orbit satellite. It weighs 436 kgs and its purpose will be the measurement of the electromagnetic spectrum.

With the help of these satellite exact locations of the enemy radars could be known easily.

ISRO took their twitter handle to announce the launch. The post:
