As far as I can tell, that countdown clock is stuck at 17 hrs 29 mins, only the second hand is moving (so to say). The launch is in little more than 8 hours.

Funny, it seems they're using the local time at the recipient's computer to calculate remaining time to local 5:50 hours or so on Oct 22nd. So this is accurate only in India.

Listen guys,
Doordarshan should be telecasting it live, This is the webcast address of the site.

http://www.ddinews.gov.in/DDNews/rplayer.htm

So tune in at 5:20AM IST sharp for an hour long extravaganza. Other TV channels should also be broadcasting.

http://www.ibnlive.com/videos/video_streaming.php

IBNLIVE has a better resolution than DD. But for those with slower connections or if a link fails, DD should still have the feed.

It is 1:30 PM on East coast and must be 11.00 PM in India. The launch is at 6:20 AM IST (wednesday) i.e. 8:50 PM EST (tuesday). That should mean the clock should show 7 hours and 20 mins where as it is showing 16 hours and 20 mins. I think this count down clock is lagging by 10 hours.

Hmmm even that is showing correct time for me...45 odd minutes remaining!

Added later - Ahhh got it, you are right, I had reset my computer to IST! that's the reason it was showing correct countdown.

Headlines Today is also showing the countdown. There is nothing else except of the Chandrayaan on TV. I guess everyone is telecasting live.

Those who are tracking the launch countdown live on video or by any other means, please post status updates here for the benefit of SDREs who can't view the video feed.
