India's maiden spacecraft to Mars has successfully left the Earth's orbit and is now cruising towards Mars after a crucial and tricky midnight operation. The complex operation began as planned at 49 minutes after midnight and lasted 23 minutes in which the spacecraft was given a nudge so that it escapes the Earth's gravity

Kudos to any country that engages in space exploration, now if only they can accept that rape isn't right and women deserve respect, it would be even better.

Your 1.4billion$ aid goes to Christian missionaries and NGO's who are hell bent on protesting against any large scale industrial projects or development and not to mention creating religious tensions by trying to mass convert the native population.....so kindly take your aid and stuff it where the sun don't shine ..

The Indian space program generates a profit by helping put other countries satellites into space and it uses these profits to fund its space program ...

Good luck India, first stage of the journey successful! Hopefully the probe will now arrive at the red planet on schedule with everything going to plan!

India needs to learn a thing or two about priorities

Western nations also have there fair share of poor people yet we continue with our space programs, why should India be any different?

Competition in this field of endeavor betters the whole of humanity's understanding of the solar system and our universe. In my opinion that's got to be a good thing!

Modus Interuptus...


The topic is the Mars Orbiter that India has put into space.

Other topics deserve another thread. Please put 'em there. Not here.

Thanks.

Those kids in these slums will finally have something to look up to. They might be poor and suffering, but give the younger generation a positive advancement their home nation achieved as a role model. Those inspired kid's will seek out the knowledge and lift their own families up as they improve themselves.

How many kid's in the 60's-70's wanted to be astronauts?? They became hooked on the sciences, and made a difference.


(Sorry Seagull, Missed your post above me) Wooo Space Adventure Mars Bound!

The aid goes to the Space Programme. I know nationalistic trolls hate the bitter facts brought up, but this is just embarrassing yourself.

Not wishing to overly disturb your worldview, but your statement is not correct. UK aid to India was directed at the poorest, a job the Indian Government seemed unable to do. For example, providing electricity to 1 million Indians (of the 290 million who don’t have electricity); training on hygiene to improve health; maternity healthcare etc... It’s all public information on the Department for International Development’s website, should you care to look.

Without UK aid, the Indian authorities are going to have to do the work, but we know they won’t. That’s sad.

To topic. I think the Indian initiative is worthwhile as it helps develop the industrial base and provides a good test bed for future initiatives. I hope it succeeds, although one wonders whether it will discover more than what has already been discovered by NASA and European space agencies.

Regards

*facepalm* you people incredibly stupid and insecure , Do you ever do a separate research than buying into the media propaganda ? India spends around $36 billion on poverty alleviation each year.... and around another $30billion on education ...

You folks remind me of Rich bully's laughing at the books of a poor kid..

Brits and their obsession with poverty porn of other countries while their own country goes to #s amazes me


This launch is also about showing technological capability , getting greater access to the space launch markets ...because of this launch Germany and another nation wants India to get their satellite to space already. this alone over the comes the cost of the mars mission

Typical talk of a feather brain!

Japan alone sends China $1.2 billion in aid every year. So according to you, the Chinese are spending the aid wisely too (on their space programs?) But your rant never mentioned China?

So, according to you, China and India must stop and disband their space programs till such time they're receiving aid. Great logic!

Secondly, do you even know the cost of India's Mars Orbiter Mission? A paltry $70 million. That's 1/15th the cost of a Boeing Dreamliner or half the cost of a Eurofighter!

So what are you bellyaching about?
