Re: Mangalyaan : ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission

In his own words: Some days back I requested ISRO and NASA JPL to make the MOM orbit data public. They kindly obliged and that is available through a web interface known as JPL HORIZONS. I fetch orbit data from there, calculate the positions, and do the animation. ISRO has shared the most recent dat...

As the old saying goes... "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus".

It's a decent logo for MOM. Shows ISRO's PR is maturing.
Also, now they are interacting with the public with their Facebook pages, it's a good sign.

Why these loosers, belly achers, whiners, complain only when a nation like India spends money in scientific advancements, but not the crores of rupees spent on Bollywood, cricket, reality shows, other mind numbing entertainments and mad consumerisms.
