As I begin to write this, it's 9 pm in Los Angeles. It's 13.5 hours ahead in India, so 10:30 a.m., about four hours until the planned launch time for the Mars Orbiter Mission. I've covered American and European and Russian and Japanese and Chinese launches before; India is a new adventure.
That means I'm not totally sure how best to get information about the mission. Here is a list I've compiled of places that I'll be watching for news. I may add to this over the course of the evening as I learn of new sources.
