Mangalyaan’s 1 month Journey in Mars orbit accomplished

Google celebrated Mangalyaan’s 1 month in Mars orbit with a Google Doodle. Google congratulated India for achieving one of the biggest achievements ever made as Mangalyaan is first one to reach Mars orbit successfully.

For this Google added a static doodle on Google’s India Homepage illustrating Mangalyaan and a small part of red planet – mars in the background. This doodle was a static one whereas most of the Google doodles are dynamic on most occasions.


Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the Mars mission as a major achievement.

History has been created today. We have achieved the near impossible. I congratulate all ISRO scientists and all my fellow Indians on this historic achievement,” he said on the day Mangalyaan entered the Mars orbit. “The odds were stacked against us. Of the 51 missions attempted across the world so far, a mere 21 had succeeded. But we have prevailed.

Mangalyaan was launched on November 5,2013 and reached Mars Orbit on September 24, 2014.
