India's Mars Orbiter Mission spacecraft, Mangalyaan, has successfully 
completed its Mars orbit insertion burn and is in orbit around Mars. 
This is an impressive achievement for India on its first interplanetary 
mission (I'd say even more impressive than the success of their first 
lunar probe, Chandrayaan-1, which successfully orbited the moon and 
impacted a probe on the surface).
