Update on Mission to Mars

A quick update on our own Mission to Mars - the Mangalyaan. When we last saw, on 1st December, Mangalyaan had successfully taken turn towards Mars. On last Wednesday, 12th February, it completed 100 days in space. It has traveled about 19 crore kilometers out of its 68 crore kilometers journey so far. All instruments are functioning normally. The signal from the spacecraft now takes 55 seconds to reach earth.
Mangalyaan with complete its journey on 24th September, when it will be inserted into Mars orbit. I will keep you posted.
