The launch of the Indian rocket 'PSLV-C53/DS-EO' on Thursday will be the 55th Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) mission and the 15th mission using the PSLV-Core Alone variant. If the launch is successful, the PSLV rocket would have launched 345 foreign satellites belonging to 36 countries since 1999.
The 25-hour-long countdown for the launch of India's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV), carrying three Singapore satellites on Thursday, is set to begin on Wednesday at 5 p.m. (IST).
While the two satellites, the 365 kg DS-EO and 155 kg NeuSAR, have been built by Starec Initiative of South Korea, the third one, 2.8 kg Scoob-1, was manufactured by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore.
According to India's space agency, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the PSLV-C53 rocket is expected to blast off from the second launch pad at the Sriharikota rocket port in India's Andhra Pradesh state at 6 p.m. on June 30.
