The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) announced that the countdown for the launch of GSLV-F10 EOS-03 mission has begun. The Earth observation satellite is scheduled to get its launch at 5:43 AM tomorrow. The Geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) will launch GISAT-1 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. The entire nation is eagerly waiting for the launch of GISAT-1 satellite before the Independence Day and ISRO got warnings about the harsh weather conditions.

ISRO posted "Countdown for the launch of GSLV-F10/EOS-03 mission commenced today at 0343Hrs (IST) from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota". The picture of GSLV-F10 too is released by ISRO along with the post and the rocket is all decked up. The GSLV-F10 mission carries the satellite GISAT-1. It is expected to be the India's eye to the sky once it reaches the orbit around the earth. The geosynchronous satellite will also be focused on the natural disasters and other short-term events as per the officials.

The GISAT-1 satellite will obtain spectral signatures for agriculture, forestry, mineralogy, cloud properties, snow and glaciers, and oceanography. This happens to be the 14th flight of the geosynchronous satellite launch. ISRO is sending an Ogive-shaped payload that measures a diameter of 4 meters this time. The GSLV-F10 weighs 2268 kg and it is placed by the launch vehicle in Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. PSLV-C52 is all set to launch one more observation satellite EOS-04 in the third quarter of this year.
