In 2014, when Mangalyaan entered the Martian orbit successfully it was a moment of glory not only for ISRO but also for Indians across the world. I remember being glued to the television screen for updates on the Mars Orbiter Mission. It became the subject of debate at parties and events and social media wasn’t far behind. Those were the days of Twitter so when Mangalyaan achieved its goal, Twitteratis joined in the celebrations with heartfelt messages, fun cartoons and encouraging facts and figures. These tweets are a source of strength, inspiration and joy. So while Mangalyaan completes its fourth successful year in the Mars orbit (September 24, 2018), we bring you some of the most notable tweets to relive that proud moment. Take a look.
First came the congratulatory messages.
Then came the recognition and respect.
Then came the inspiration.
And finally, the giggles that left people smiling with pride.
ISRO’s success with India’s Mars Orbiter Mission has been phenomenal. This extraordinary journey has been documented into a short film directed by Imran Khan. The film titled, “Mission Mars – Keep Walking India” has been backed by Johnnie Walker – The Journey and is produced by Dharma 2.0. Meanwhile, you can watch the trailer for the film here.
