"Now waiting for parents to say 'Beta Mars pe chale jao, aajkal bohot scope hai'."
On 23 September, India successfully became the fourth country in the world to launch a satellite into orbit around Mars. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) joined NASA, the Russian Federal Space Agency, and the European Space Agency as the only international space agencies to succeed in this mission.
Among these, the ISRO holds the title of being the first international space agency to succeed in such a mission on its first attempt. The ship, the Mangalyaan, will soon begin its mission to study the atmosphere and terrain of the red planet.
