That's cool AJA. Maybe we can get the webmasters to make that default! Good morning to you by the way ;)

Indian TV is fascinating. Switches back and forth with English, in the same adverts.

Noting the risks associated with getting the insertion wrong.

Cheapest interplanetary mission in global history.

Good morning! But do you even know when you last slept? :D

English has made a place for itself in most Indian languages. No one'll bother to translate "orbit insertion", or "Apogee motor" :P Same reason why I can make some sense of Russian launches. But I'll stop with the chit-chat now.

2:20am in England, but it wouldn't matter, as this is another Mars mission. Sleeping through this would be a sin! ;D

They are making a big deal out of the cost. "MAVEN cost 10 times more. Hollywood movies cost a lot more".

The first telemetry's going to come from Australia (Canberra 70 m). Evocative of some happy moments :D
