After travelling a distance of more than 650 million kilometres, India's Mar's Orbiter Mission 'Mangalyaan' today entered the Mars' orbit. The success has made India the first Asian country and ISRO the fourth space agency to send a satellite to the red planet. ISRO is also the first to enter the Martian Orbit in it’s maiden attempt.

The MOM spacecraft was launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota, in November last year.

It's is important to note that only 21 missions to Mars, of the total 51, across the world, have succeeded so far.

On this occassion the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, said, "I am sure that this breakthrough, which marks a significant landmark in our space programme, will inspire our scientists to make even greater strides."

"Innovation, after all, by its very nature involves risk; as you are trying to do something which has not been done before. It's a leap into the dark. Humanity would not have progressed, if we had not taken such leaps into the unknown. And space is indeed the biggest unknown out there," said Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India.
