    India Create History: Becomes the First Nation to have Successful Mars Mission in First Attempt

    A new milestone in the field of science and technology, India has become the first nation to reach Mars on a maiden attempt on Wednesday.

    Indian Space Research Organisation's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) spacecraft started orbiting the red planet at 7.47 am, but it was only 12 minutes later óbecause of a time delay in radio signals travelling the 680 million km -- that scientists at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network in Bangalore.




    The scientists had waited for more than 300 days as MOM journeyed on through space, but the last 54 minutes were virtually unbearable. For, it was during this period that the orbiter first reoriented itself and then fired its engine and thrusters for about 24 minutes to get into the Mars orbit.
