It is a probe and an orbiter like Mangalyaan -1. Lander and rover obviously excites people more

India would have exploded if we had a landing mission on Mars...  This is a orbiter mission hence not a lot of excitement.  Not a lot of build up to it as well planned by ISRO.  So it was a medium low key event. 


Hopefully such events would boost partnerships with Western space agencies when it comes to R&D programs & we keep improving provided they are willing to share tech. 

Obviously can't be a lander on the sun :giggle:


But India's first solar mission and successful :isalute:

It did not wake up. I guess ISRO knows the tradeoffs.

Heard batteries expired sooner due to extreme cold so it was a long shot in the first place. 


Hopefully next Rover on Mars after 2030 landing mission would rival Chinese one.
