Kudos!! Its 6th month successful completion of Mangalyaan.

Thanks for your interest in my blog. Please key down for your valuable comments.. :-)

A major successful mission which is a crown to all the Indians is Mangalyaan formally called as MOM (Mars Orbiter Mission). We are entering the 6th month successful completion of Mangalyaan. I am taking this moment to be proud as an Indian and as an opportunity to appreciate our Indian scientists who were all responsible for the grand success of Mangalyaan.

Lets see a quick recap of the success story of this mission towards the red planet.

Before 6 month, 24th September 2014, Mangalyaan is launched with a huge expectation and pride. Mangalyaan is India’s first inter- planetary mission to the planet. That day India has succeeded on its debut attempt - an achievement that eluded even the Americans and the Soviets. 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the country had achieved the "near impossible" and he made this mission an unofficial logo of his 'Make in India' campaign. "It is a shining example of the 'Make in India' initiative," he said.  

India became the first nation in Asia and the fourth nation in the world to reach mars following US, Russia and Europe. Also, India had a great pleasure that she beat her regional rival China in reaching mars.

We got appreciation from all parts of the world. Mainly, US space agency NASA tweeted:
"We congratulate @ISRO for its Mars arrival! @MarsOrbiter joins the missions studying the Red Planet,"

One of the young scientist enjoyed saying "Thrilled to be a part of history,"  "It's like hitting a golf ball from Bangalore to London and getting it into the hole in one go," deputy operations director, BN Ramkrishna said.

With the budget of Rs.450 crore, which is a cheapest cost for the inter-planetary mission, we were able to win higher with a crew of talented scientists in ISRO.

The Mars Orbiter Mission team also won US-based National Space Society's 2015 Space Pioneer Award in the science and engineering category. NSS said the award was given as the Indian agency successfully executed a Mars mission in its first attempt; and the spacecraft is in an elliptical orbit with a high apoapsis where, with its high resolution camera, it is taking full-disk color imagery of Mars. These images will aid planetary scientists for their predictions.

The satellite joined four other missions that are already circling the planet: Maven (US) sent 2 days before Mangalyaan, Mars Odyssey (US), Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (US) and Mars Express (Europe).
