A trip to Birla Planetarium to know more about MOM

The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), informally called Mangalyaan, is a Mars orbiter launched into Earth orbit on 5th November 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). It entered orbit around Mars on 24th September 2014. The G.P. Birla Astronomical Observatory and Research Centre, in this connection, organized a day long Mars Camp on September 24, 2014 focusing on Mars for 6th to 10th class school children and teachers from 10.30 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. to create awareness about the ongoing research on planet Mars. A total of 110 students from Oakridge registered for the program. The program started with a seminar by Dr. S.M Ahmed, former ISRO scientist and now a professor in HCU. Dr. Ahmed spoke about the planet Mars and how proud we are as India is the only country to have this successful achievement in the very first attempt. India is the 4th country to have this achievement and the 1st Asian country to have the same. MOM will also study the atmosphere of Mars, using a methane gas sniffer, in a bid to unearth presence of Martian microbes if any. The seminar ended with an interesting interactive session between the speaker and the students. Please find attached a collage of pics from the trip.
India is the only country to have this.
