India’s Space Odyssey
Like the Curiosity, India has its own mission planned to Mars. The 450 crore Mangalyaan mission is a planned Mars orbiter, to be launched on October 28, 2013, by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The spacecraft is expected to take nearly 300 days to reach the Martian orbit. The nano car sized unmanned satellite will orbit the red planet and will study the climate, geology, origin, evolution and sustainability of life on the planet.
