Success! India’s First Mars Probe Is In Orbit And Working
“India has managed to do what few other nations have accomplished: putting a satellite into orbit around another planet — and it did so a lot cheaper than the competition.
The $70 million Mangalyaan, or “Mars craft” in Hindi, began circling Mars after a 24-minute engine burn to slow it down enough to be captured by the Red Planet’s gravity.”
Read more from NPR.


YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES SPACE

It’s not just that the satellite is cheaper, but that they focused on finding answers to questions that hadn’t been answered AND which could be answered cheaply AND which compliments other nations’ scientific research into Mars.This was, in short, a very well-realized space expedition. India deserves all the attention.
