Another reason why this Diwali 2013 festival will be special, India today successfully launched its indigenous Mangalayaan mission, called Mars Orbit Mission (MOM),to study its surface. Last time India’s Chandrayan-1 (Moon Safari) has found traces of water on the Moon. Hindu mythological story of Samudra Manthan clearly points (here) out Mars is a Son of the Earth (symbolizing similar structure as that of the earth) , which is now proved that during Big Bang process, Mars has got cut off as tail from molten earth structure.
Congratulations to all ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) scientists for their hard work & dedication over the years, and making India proud! 🙂
