The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), also called Mangalyaan “Mars-craft” is a Mars orbiter which was launched into Earth orbit on 5 November 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It was successfully inserted into Mars orbit on 24 September 2014, making India the first Asian nation to send a satellite into Mars orbit, and the first nation in the world to do so on its first attempt.
The mission is a “technology demonstrator” project aiming to develop the technologies required for design, planning, management, and operations of an interplanetary mission. It carries five instruments, one of which, a methane detector, will particularly advance knowledge about Mars.
