India makes history, MOM successfully enters Mars orbit.

Time to feel proud as an Indian.

India created history on Wednesday, becoming the first country to successfully get a spacecraft into the Martian orbit on its maiden attempt.

Indian Space Research Organization's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) spacecraft started orbiting the red planet at 7.47am, but it was only 12 minutes later because of a time delay in radio signals travelling the 680 million km that scientists at Isro Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network in Bangalore, could erupt in joy as Prime Minister Narendra Modi stood a happy witness.

Most remarkable thing about this mission has been its low cost, at just $74 million.
