Today India successfully launched its ambitious & indigenous Mars Obiter Mission (Mangalyaan, Sanskrit word means Mars Safari), & became 4th country after USA, Russia and Europeans. If successful, India will be 2nd country in the history of mankind after USA to reach on Mars! It will take about 9 months for Mangalyaan to reach Mars orbit. Its a very complex mission , China and Japan have already tried unsuccessful attempts. So, Fingers crossed!!
