All the Best ISRO - for Successful Mars Orbital Mission (MOM)

Billion eyes are set on the India's Maiden mission to the red planet. ISRO's Mars Orbital Mission (MOM), informally called Mangalyaan, is India's foray into interplanetary missions and space exploration. MOM will be India's giant leap in Space.

Mars Orbital Mission will be launched on November 5 from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. The initial lauch date was October 28, which is postponed due to bad weather in Pacific Ocean.

If Weather God permits and everything else goes great, ISRO's MOM will be a huge Diwali Bonanza for the Indians. Otherwise, the launch window will remain open till November 19.

ISRO has deployed two ships, SCI Yamuna and SCI Nalanda hired from the Shipping Corporation of India, in Pacific Ocean to monitor and track the upper stages of the PSLV C25-Mars Orbital Mission.

One of the main objectives of the Mission is to develop the technologies  required for design, planning, management and operations of an interplanetary mission.
