India is inching towards a milestone in space technology with preparatory work in full swing at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota to launch the country’s first inter-planetary satellite to Mars on Tuesday. 


 “The countdown for the launch has been progressing smoothly. Things are normal. We are busy with preparatory work,” an Isro spokesman said. 
    The Launch Authorisation Board of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) had on November 1 given its consent for launch of the mission after a successful launch rehearsal the previous day. 


    The 44.4 metre tall rocket has been mounted on the pedestal of the First Launch Pad at the spaceport, covered by a 76 metre tall mobile service tower, designed to withstand a wind speed of 230 km per hour, in case of a cyclone. 


    Vehicle tracking stations at Port Blair, Bylalu near Bangalore and Brunei are on an alert mode, while sea-borne terminals on board Shipping Corporation of India’s vessels SCI Nalanda and SCI Yamuna have taken their positions at South Pacific Ocean, Isro sources said.
