The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), informally called Mangalyaan (Sanskrit for "Mars-Craft"), is a Mars orbiter launched into Earth orbit on 5 November 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is expected to enter orbit around Mars on 24 September 2014. The mission is a "technology demonstrator" project aiming to develop the technologies required for design, planning, management, and operations of an interplanetary mission.

Fun Fact:
ISRO has spent only Rs 450 crore on the project. In comparison, a similar NASA mission costs 4166 crore. 



Under Construction: Mangalyaan attached to the fourth state of PSLV rockets. Ready for heat shield closure. Note the tricolor :)



Launch Date : 5 November, 2013
