PM says, "I had option not to come here but I still chose to. Even if we had failed, its my responsibility that I be present with the scientists." Inspiring!

Talking about the across the board expertise required for space technology, and how that can translate into good governance (his campaign message, and pretty much his mandate). Tying it in nicely with ISRO's application focus.

What I find most impresive of the PM's speech so far is the fact that he doesn't seem to be using a tele-prompter, and yet he seems extremely articulate and knowledgable. It's been a long time that I recall a PM or President who is that quick & knowledgable of the subject at hand.

He's a great orator.

Today's a day of some ritual observance in the Hindu calendar to pay tribute to your forefathers... and he's folding that in too. With the mention of Aryabhatta, and zero.

India Prime Minister Modi says that this Mars mission must lay the groundwork for even higher goals

I say -- Let the next Mars mission's planning commence!

"Let us push our boundaries, and then push some more, push some more." :D

He's quoting Tagore's "without fear" poem. :)


If our cricket team wins a tournament and comes back home, the whole country breaks into dance. This achievement of scientists is a 1000x greater as an achievement."


"Tomorrow is the start of Navratri, it's an auspicious beginning. Let's have five minutes of applause for these scientists in every school and college. Let every Indian own this achievement."

Haha.. that's one of the criticisms of our PM. But not to worry. You can bet that the project team, and managers would've all been booked on prime-time news shows, and interviews. Profiles in newspapers throughout the remainder of the week, if not longer.

Final orbital velocity only deviated 0.3m/s from the planned target. Very precise!

Did she perhaps have a view of a shooting star in the night sky?
Were any of the other orbiters in a decent vantage point to slew and observe another spacecraft entering orbit? Either MAVEN or Mangalyaan?
