So far it has completed 388 orbits. Initially mission life was expected to be only 180 days but as of today it has finished 1000 days in the orbit and scientists are expecting that the spacecraft will be operational and orbit Mars for another 5 years as it is in a very good condition and it has got about 13 kg of fuel left.

India become the first country to reach Mars in first attempt, entered orbit in 2014, although it was more of a technology demonstrator but it was an excellent achievement, India’s excellence in science and tech field. MOM mission was a one of a kind project and it still beams back data to earth. it was a marvel of engineering. Even though its methane sensor failed to detect methane but still sends back images and other data. In 2017 union...
