I think the title of this thread strongly indicates that the Great Galactic Ghoul is still digesting Beagle 2.

This is an awesome accomplishment from India, now lets see Chandrayaan-2 make it to 2016 !

ISRO's Mars Orbiter outlives original lifespan of 6 months, completes 1000 days in orbit

India's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) completed 1000 earth days in its orbit which is beyond its designed mission life.
Indian Space Research Organisation's maiden interplanetary mission was designated to last only for six months but it outlived its lifespan. MOM was launched on November 5, 2013 by PSLV-25 and it entered the Martian orbit on September 24,2014.
The mission's success received applause from across the world as it was able to enter the red planet's orbit in its first attempt and was cost-effective when compared to missions launched by NASA and the European Space Agency.


Congratulations to ISRO and all the team for this fantastic achievement.
