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).
