India set to create History: Mangalyaan
Mangalyaan space craft creates history for India. India\'s maiden Mars mission was on course to reaching the Red Planet\'s orbit that could create history as the spacecraft\'s main engine was successfully fired on Monday in the first test of its last crucial manoeuvre in search for evidence of life.
"We are not the only show that is happening on Mars this week," said Gary Napier, a spokesman for Lockheed Martin, during a NASA television broadcast of the orbital insertion. "Everyone at NASA and its partners wishes that team all the best."
The MOM was launched from ISRO's spaceport of Sriharikota on November 5 last.
