Wednesday turns to be the most important day as far as Indian Space Technology is concerned. The anxiety of every Indian has come to a conclusion with the success of the Mars Orbiter Mission, prestigiously undertaken by ISRO. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) had prestigiously undertaken the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) with the sole scientific objective of exploration of Mars surface features, morphology, mineralogy and Martian atmosphere by aboriginal scientific instruments, besides many technological aspects. After completing an interplanetary journey of more than 10 months covering a distance of 484.67 million miles (780 million km), The Mars Orbiter Mission - more aptly known as Mangalyaan - entered orbit around Mars on Wednesday at 8.15 a.m.

As far as Indian space technology is concerned, it is India’s first interplanetary mission and, as the mission became successful, ISRO became the fourth space agency to reach Mars, after the Soviet space program, NASA, and the European Space Agency.

The success of MOM has not only proven the ISRO’s calibre to the entire world but once again given indication of India’s supremacy in Satellite technology.
