    From TV it seems that it has gone a little higher than expected! But it is going to be corrected.
    Sorry, but it was not in mind, just joking...

    India has successfully launched a spacecraft to the Red Planet - with the aim of becoming the fourth space agency to reach Mars.

    The Mars Orbiter Mission took off at 09:08 GMT from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on the country's east coast.

    The head of India's space agency told the BBC the mission would demonstrate the technological capability to reach Mars orbit and carry out experiments.

    The spacecraft is set to travel for 300 days and reaching Mars orbit in 2014.

    If the satellite orbits the Red Planet, India's space agency will become the fourth in the world after those of the US, Russia and Europe to undertake a successful Mars mission.

    A 56-hour countdown to the launch began on Sunday.

    Mars mission history
    [​IMG]
    • The USSR, Russia, US, Britain, Europe, Japan and China have all launched missions to Mars
    • More than half the world's attempts to reach the Red Planet - 23 out of 40 missions - have failed
    • Only the US, USSR and Europe have been successful to date
    Some commentators have wondered whether India should be spending $72m (£45m) on a scientific mission when the country has one of the highest rankings for childhood malnutrition in the world.

    But those who defend such projects say the MOM is comparatively cheap and that the technological development required to mount this mission could indirectly benefit the country's other activities.

    Nisha Agrawal, chief executive of Oxfam in India, told the BBC: "India is home to poor people but it's also an emerging economy, it's a middle-income country, it's a member of the G20. What is hard for people to get their head around is that we are home to poverty but also a global power.

    "We are not really one country but two in one. And we need to do both things: contribute to global knowledge as well as take care of poor people at home."

    K Radhakrishnan, chair of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro), told the BBC's India Business Report: "Why India has to be in the space programme is a question that has been asked over the last 50 years. The answer then, now and in the future will be: 'It is for finding solutions to the problems of man and society.'

    He added: "A great revolution has taken place over these last 50 years in the country by a meagre expenditure that has been put into the space programme."

    Mr Radhakrishnan played down talk of a race between China and India in space, commenting: "We are not in a race with anybody, but I would say we are in a race with ourselves. We need to excel, we need to improve, and we need to bring new services."

    But a successful launch would allow India to surge ahead of regional rival China, at least in the exploration of Mars. China's Yinghuo-1 spacecraft was to have reached Martian orbit in late 2012. But it was piggybacked on the Russian Phobos Grunt spacecraft, which became stranded in low-Earth orbit shortly after launch in November 2011.

    The MOM was to have been launched as early as 28 October, but rough weather in the Pacific forced officials to delay the launch.
