My Indian Favorites @ 2013 # 7 - Mars Orbiter Mission

The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), aka Mangalyaan, is the proud addition to the Indian Space research Organization's (ISRO) list of achievements. Also, it was every Indian's proud moment when the MOM was launched from Sriharikota on November 5th. It will remain to be. It will be even more celebrating on the day when this mission gets successful by reaching the Mars. 

MOM is first of it's kind, the interplanetary mission, from ISRO. The earlier Chandrayaan mission was as well a prestigious step towards occupying our own space in the space. Although it is said that the launch of Mangalyaan is just to showcase the capabilities of India and it's rocket launching systems, there is more to that, in the form of the objectives of the launch stated . As the world is going crazy about the Mars-One, especially the Indians, it makes sense to put a step forward in a scientific way to explore the life-options around the space. It has always been the team effort at ISRO be it for all the earlier launcher or for their latest pie. Congratulations Team Mangalyaan!

Let us be hopeful of Mangalyaan reaching the Mars on the scheduled date. It will be great to be listed along with the three other space centers, the only three to perform the job so far. May all the experiments of ISO scientists get succeeded. May all their efforts get resulted into the deserving findings. This is not just important for ISRO or India, it is important for the mankind. All the best Team ISRO.
