India's MOM Completes One Year

Bengaluru:Sept 24; It's the one year completed by India's MOM(Mars Orbiter Mission),proudly known as Mangalyaan!

The space probe entered the Mars orbit on 24 September 2014, almost a year after its launch, and made its home around the Red Planet.

On that day last year ISRO's Mars mission was the pride of entire India as it was only the fourth space agency to reach Mars, after the Soviet space program, NASA, and the European Space Agency. India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars orbit, and the first nation in the world to do so in its first attempt.

In the year since, Mangalyaan has sent us regular updates about its times through social media. As the orbiter completes a year on Mars, here are some of the highlights from MOM's time on the Red Planet.
