As per the official reports, India conquered its first ever inter-planetary mission of putting the satellite in to orbit around Mars on Wednesday. After the successful accomplishment of the mission, India is projected as an elite club of deep-space explorers.
The Indian TV has showed the live broadcast of the event. Researchers have welcomed with the wild applause while the engines successfully completed its burn-time of 24-mins to contrive the spaceship into its specified place around the red-planet.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated, “With the successful completion of this mission, we have moved afar from the border-lines of human enterprise and innovation.” He further congratulated the researcher for the accomplished mission and said, “We have steered our spaceship via route that is known to few.”
However, the scientist also explained the further stages of the Mars Orbiter Mission. They nicknamed the mission as MOM. After the successful mission of the space program, the scientist called it as a milestone in revealing that they can conduct more complex missions and operate as a global-launch pad for commercial, navigational and research satellites.
This was considered to be the major achievement for an under develop country like India who have 1.2bn people from which most are poor. Meanwhile it has good scientific and technical education system, which produced so many engineers, doctors, and software programmers every year.
India portrays MOM to be the first successful mission on Mars attempted by any under-develop country. Though, the ESA (European Space Agency), which is considered as the conglomerate of several nations, did its first Mars mission back in 2003.
On the other hand, China, which is a biggest rival of India, also, expanding its space exploration programs along with a space-lab in the orbit before the establishment of the permanent space-station.
No doubt, putting a spacecraft in to an orbit around Mars is not an easy task to do. Half of the World countries already had attempted out of which 23 missions have failed from the entre 41 missions. Indian named this spaceship as ‘Mangalyaan’ in Hindi, which means ‘Mars Craft’. Furthermore, India is expecting this spaceship to be a universal promotion for its ability in designing, preparation and managing a difficult, deep-space mission.
Though, India have already completed some of the successful missions of satellite launches involving transferring the Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter, which revealed key facts of water on the moon in 2008. Moreover, they are planning to send the Rover on the moon.
