Space has always been a subject to be explored and learn new things and facts. Many data shows that all the scientific efforts made to surf space have gathered a lot of information for humans about the space but the area that we have explored is not even 1% of the total universe which means that there is a lot to explore yet for humans. Every country has tried on its level the best and has succeeded too and in that series, India ranks among the top countries in space exploration.

Another set of 10 lines on Mangalyaan is created by us for the reader. The set is prepared with some additional data that can help the reader to gain some other information on the topic. The use of easy language in creating the set is to make the set useful for the reader of both, lower classes as well as upper classes, and the set can easily be read and understood with all the points given. So let’s read the second set for more knowledge about Mangalyaan.

Mangalyaan was the first Mars mission of India with a hope to explore the moon for the existence of life. Its success cleared that India is behind the developed countries in the field of science and technology. India was acclaimed globally for such a cheap and well strategic mission. Even the Indian RBI (Reserve Bank of India) also celebrated the anniversary of the event by issuing ₹2000 on 8th November 2016 which has an image of Mangalyaan.
