The images it sent back truly incite curiosity, a sense of grandeur and a drive to further explore space! Here are some of the incredibly stunning images
India’s first interplanetary travel was set afoot in 2014 with the Mars Orbiter Mission – Mangalyaan. A few days ago, it completed four years of its journey in outer space observing data and sending it back.
What makes Mangalyaan a huge success is that it was developed at a staggeringly low price of Rs 4.5 billion which is ten times cheaper than the American Maven orbiter, sent to the same red planet!

Yes, the Maven had a larger payload, but the capabilities of Mangalyaan are no less. Equipped with special methane sensors to detect gases in Mars’ atmosphere, the orbiter came as close as 366 km to the red planet.
And the images it sent back truly incite curiosity, a sense of grandeur and a drive to further explore space! Here are some of the incredibly stunning images captured by the Mangalyaan.
