Indeed Indians are proud sons of their Mom’s but this time the whole of India is proud of only one MOM, the Mars Orbiter Mission spacecraft, also known as Mangalyaan. When Mangalyaan made its successful launch in Mars the Indians celebrated this moment. With the successful launch of less cost Mars Orbiter spacecraft India managed to obtain its name with the list of giant nations such as United states, Russia and the Europe in successfully sending probes to orbit or land on Mars. All about Mangalyaan
India’s space program was launched in the early 1960’s. Later they developed their own rocket technology after the western powers imposed sanctions for a nuclear weapon test in 1974. The MOM mission concept began with a feasibility study in 2010, after the launch of lunar satellite Chandrayaan-1 in 2008. The Indian government approved the project on 3 August 2012, after the Indian Space Research Organisation completed US$21 million of required studies for the orbiter.
Mangalyaan was launched into Earth orbit on 5 November 2013 by ISRO.It was successfully inserted into Mars orbit on 24 September 2014, creating history for INDIA and making it the first nation to send a satellite into Mars orbit on its first attempt. On 25th September Mangalyaan sends its first set of pictures of the Red Planet’s surface. The spacecraft has sent back high quality images of Mars hours after it successfully entered the Red Planet’s orbit on Wednesday.
With such an impressive engineering feat everyone welcomed India to the family of nations studying facet of the Red Planet. India created space history on Wednesday by becoming the only and first Asian country to reach Mars and the first in the world to place a spacecraft in the Red Planet’s orbit in the maiden attempt. No words of appreciation is enough for the great efforts taken by the Indian scientists. They have really made each and every individual proud. Salute to the great brains behind the Mangalyaan project. Once again India has shown to the world that we Indians are quite talented.
