The MOM(Mars Orbiter Mission) was launched on November 5, 2013 and entered the orbit of the fiery red planet on September 24, 2014, in its first attempt. The MOM has now completed 388 orbits of Mars and relayed back a storm of data including over 715 images. There is also a methane sensor that measures emitted thermal Infrared radiation and helps to calculate the Deuterium to Hydrogen ratio in the planet’s atmosphere. India is already planning for a new mission to Venus that will happen after 2020.
