The spacecraft designed for Mars Orbiter Mission, expected to be launched in the next two months, will be taken to Sriharikota in Andhra..Pradesh on September 27. The launch window for the mission is between October 21 and November 19. This mission to be launched using PSLV‐ C25 (an XL version of the launch vehicle) from the Sathish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, will be India’s first inter planetary mission. It would take nine months for the spacecraft to reach the planet. The project was approved as recently as last August. Scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), who were part of the project, said the mission was a step towards establishing India’s self‐reliance in science and technology.
