The fuel to run the Mangalyaan mission of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has run out. Also its battery is also not working. That is, now the journey of 8 years and 8 days of Mars Orbiter Mission has been completed. The mission was launched on 5 November 2013, after which it reached Mars orbit on 24 September 2014.

Mangalyaan lived 16 times more than the scheduled life
Actually, ISRO sent Mangalyaan to Mars for only 6 months, but it spent more than 8 years on the planet. Indian scientists had sent Mangalyaan only to demonstrate the technology, but it did wonders by going to Mars.

Scientists say that the battery in the spacecraft was charged by sunlight. Without him it could not last more than an hour and 40 minutes. An ISRO official told Aaj Tak that there were many eclipses on Mars recently. The longest eclipse was of 7.5 hours, due to which the battery could not be charged and Mangalyaan came to an end.

Why was the Mangalyaan mission special?
The Mangalyaan mission was quite special because of its cost. It was made in less time and less cost. ISRO spent only Rs 450 crore in this entire mission. It was designed in just 6 months. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said in a statement that the Mangalyaan mission has been made at a cost less than the Hollywood film ‘Gravity’. With this mission, India became the first country in the world to reach Mars on its first attempt. The spacecraft sent more than 1000 photos of Mars during the mission, creating a complete atlas of the planet.

The world was surprised by the capability of Mangalyaan

Mangalyaan had only 5 payloads. His weight was only 15 kilograms. The names of these 5 instruments were – Mars Color Camera (MCC), Thermal Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (TIS), Methane Sensor for Mars (MSM), Mars Exospheric Neutral Composition Analyzer (MENCA) and Lyman Alpha Photometer (LAP). Their work was to investigate the topography, outer layers, atmospheric processes, surface temperature, etc. of Mars.
