Dr. Anil Bharadwaj on the Mars Orbiter Mission Flying Through a Tail of Comet

Dr. Anil Bharadwaj discusses the teams expectations for the Mars Orbiter Mission and what he hopes it will do for India’s science program. He evaluates the instruments in the mission and what kind of information they will be able to capture on Mars. The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), informally called Mangalyaan ("Mars-Craft"), is a Mars orbiter that was launched into Earth's orbit on November 5, 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). It is India's first interplanetary mission and, if successful, ISRO would become the fourth space agency to reach Mars, after the Soviet space program, United States' NASA, and the European Space Agency.
