          The final 49 hr countdown for the take off India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) which will put Chandrayaan-I into orbit began around 5:30 am on Monday two day before the launch from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.The launch is scheduled at 6:22 am Tomorrow,(oct 22).”The countdown is going on smoothly.The countdown involves a lot of activities and continuous operation, in which 100 of people work simultaneously.These activities and operations will by synchronised and linked to the common time” Dr Prasad, Associate Director ISRO.

                 The Indian space Research Organisation said the countdown activities are always optimised.Since Chandrayaan-I is a rainproof vehicle there is no real big issue in launching the Vehicle. But is feared of lightining and the electric charges in the clouds.This is the first time that ISRO is sending a Spacecraft to moon which is 3.84 lakhs kms away from earth.It is a complex mission because ISRO has to continuously communicate with the Space craft inorder to get the signals in a perfect way and so as to make sure that it gets the orbit, the right way.
