Said Goswami: "Our plan envisages imaging Mars only through an orbiter. We have no immediate plans for a landing mission."

Re: India's Mission to Mars

Hi all - haven't logged in here in awhile - just thought I'd post the latest news on the success of India's Mars Orbiter Mission. MOM has successfully achieved orbit around Mars:

Here are the latest pics, and I'm sure there'll be more to come:

The mission was planned to have a life of 6 months, but that may be extended due to the fact that the orbiter arrived at Mars with more fuel left over than anticipated.

I'm not sure how to see the actual film. It was an entry in a film competition.
