It was a proud moment for India, when the Indian Space Research Organisation launched the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), the first one ever to successfully position a satellite in an orbit around Mars. Why Mars? What makes this planet more special than our other neighbours in the solar system? What do we hope to learn from exploring another planet? This article explores some of these questions on interplanetary explorations, while also building an understanding of space science in practice.
