Re: GSLV-D5 Launch status and post launch discussions

Late for the party ..... WOW ISRO! Congrats!

My "Ode" to our Skylark (GSLV):

Our Cryo history is too full of kinks,
Fuelled by Unkil and his arm-twisting links, :evil:
    Today we gave the cry,
    with a roar that inked the sky, :mrgreen:
Now Unkil sure looks Jar-Jar-Binks. :((

Re: Mangalyaan : ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission

The primary objective is to put Mangalyaan into Mars orbit. As per Dr RK that will meet 85% of the mission objective. Navigating through 3 SOIs (Spheres of Influence) -- Earth, Sun and Mars -- with latency factored in, will be a tremendous achievement and a learning experience.
