India's Mars Orbiter Mission: A Successful Venture
September 24 , 2014
In what is termed as India’s maiden Mars Mission, India emerged victorious. The spacecraft successfully entered Mars on Wednesday, September 24, making India the first country in the world to enter Mar’s orbit in its maiden attempt itself. There are countries who have failed several times in such a venture.
The mission was lauded for its low-cost scheme of $74 million and stands as a major boost to the country’s technology and infrastructure. Indeed history has been created and all credit goes to the state-owned Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
