India's Low-cost Space Mission Reaches Mars Orbit by uzoexcel(m): 9:25am On Sep 24, 2014
India has become the first nation to reach Mars on its maiden attempt after its Mars Orbiter Mission completed its 10-month journey and successfully entered the Red Planet’s orbit. bit.

The Indian Space Research Organization’s unmanned drone, also called Mangalyaan, was programmed by Indian engineers to fire its main engine and eight smaller thrusters for 24 minutes, starting at 0147 GMT in order to make the spacecraft's final maneuvers into Mars' orbit.

The spacecraft has executed the arrival sequence autonomously with engineers receiving the telemetry with 12-and-a-half minute delay at ISRO's control center in Bangalore due to the 139 million miles separating Earth and Mars.

“History has been created today,” said Indian prime minister Narendra Modi. “We have dared to reach out into the unknown and have achieved the near-impossible. I congratulate all ISRO scientists as well as all my fellow Indians on this historic occasion.”

On the orbit, the unnamed probe is set to study Mars’ surface and scan its atmosphere for evidence of some sort of life. The probe is expected to circle Mars for six months, about 500 kilometers (310 miles) from its surface. Its five scientific instruments will collect data and send it back to Earth.

The Mangalyaan is equipped with a color imaging camera, a thermal infrared spectrometer to measure the chemical composition of the surface, and instruments to assess the Mars atmosphere, including a methane detector.

The Mars Orbiter Mission, a low-cost $74 million project, blasted off from Earth on November 5, 2013, aboard an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle. At its initial stage, the rocket booster placed the probe into Earth's orbit before the craft fired the engines to break free of Earth's gravity en route to Mars.

This is India's first mission into such deep space to search for evidence of life on the Red Planet. But the mission's primary objective is technological – if successful, the country will be joining an elite club of nations: the United States, Russia and Europe.

He's talking about africans and our tendency to have religious tinted views on matters affeccting us as per africans as a whole..to a typical xtian/muslim most indians are gonna end up in hell for nt 'seeing the light'

Anyway the aim of this thread is to congratulate the indians who though were also colonized by the oyibo man,atook and adapted his technology and improved upon it with their indigeneous wayswhile rejecting his religion..till date most indians dnt even have 'white' names..we here in africa on d other hand did the total opposite

Rather there should be restructuring, and reforms in the traditional sector..in such a way that it will promote development and black emancipation in the highest order.. Its broad but once that is done. People will begin to find their roots .. If something higher than religion comes in the future .. Black will run with it.. That's y I say there must be a positive brainwash. To bring back the black mind to the right road path

Sorry for the late reply.. I have been quite busy. the kind of reforms am looking at are measures that will be taken to channel the spiritual energy in atr towards innovation and developments in all spheres .. Just like how the indians and asians have done successfully. We need to bring back confidence in the traditional sector, use the tradition as a catalyst of change amongst nigerians For such to be successful .. We must to have documented all the tradition religious practices in the country. Make reviews and put of what needs to be added and removed.. Find innovative ways to control the negative energy in the society etc

a typical Black's way of thinking. lemme grin first. The world is marching on technologically but its such a pity only Africa is left far behind(except SA and Egypt). Our own problems are just to eat, give birth like sheep, embezzle fund when in public office, organize religious revival up and down seeking for abracadabra. Is it that we are under an everlasting spell? This is really painful. Our biggest mistake was in chasing The Masters out so soon all in the guise of one useless independence If I say am ashamed to be born a black now one mumu from nor where go kom dey threaten me with death, SMH!
