NEW DELHI, December 01, 12:22 /ITAR-TASS/. The first Indian probe Mangalyaan entered the flight trajectory to the Mars successfully on Sunday, leaving the orbit of the Earth, the Indian Space Research Organization reported.
The probe Mangalyaan was launched in early November. A 1,5-tonne spacecraft is to pass more than 350 million kilometres. The probe is expected to reach the Martian orbit in September 2014.
Special spectrometers are installed onboard the probe to study the atmosphere and surface of the planet in detail.
The main goal of Mangalyaan’s mission is to test the technologies, which are required for a future manned Indian Martian programme, the authors of the project said.
