With its arrival on Mars on 24 September 2014, India became the first country in the world to succeed in its first attempt and the fourth country in the world after Soviet Russia, NASA and the European Space Agency.
India's historic Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) i.e. Mangalyaan has run out of battery and fuel after nearly eight years since its launch on 5 November 2013 and entering Mars orbit on 24 September 2014. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) sources gave this information. He said that contact with Mangalyaan has been lost. However, ISRO has not issued any official statement regarding this yet.
According to sources, ISRO was trying to increase the life of Mangalyaan's battery by improving its orbit. This was also necessary so that the Mangalyaan continued to receive energy even during long eclipses, but after several recent eclipses, the orbit could not improve due to which it became lethargic, as the battery could leave it during long eclipses. He explained that since the satellite battery was designed to have an eclipse duration of only one hour and 40 minutes, the battery was nearly exhausted due to a longer eclipse. According to ISRO officials, the Mars Orbiter Vehicle was built to a capacity of six months.
India's first Mars mission
Mangalyaan (Mars Orbiter Mission) is India's first Mars mission and is an ambitious space project of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). Under this project, 'Mars Orbiter Mission' (MOM) costing four and a half hundred crores was launched on 5 November 2013 at 2:38 am. The satellite launched to orbit the planet Mars was successfully launched by the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C-25 from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. With this, India has now also joined those countries, which have sent their vehicles to Mars.
With its arrival on Mars on 24 September 2014, India became the first country in the world to succeed in its first attempt and the fourth country in the world after Soviet Russia, NASA and the European Space Agency. Apart from this, it was also the cheapest mission sent to Mars. India also became the first country in Asia to do so, as China and Japan had previously failed in their Mars mission. The prestigious 'Time' magazine named Mangalyaan as one of the best inventions of 2014.
