Mangalyaan-1, known internationally as the Mars Orbiter Mission, is India's first interplanetary mission. Launched in 2013-Nov-5 aboard a PSLV rocket, it reached the Red Planet on 2014-Sept-24, just two days after the arrival of MAVEN. Originally planned to last for only six months, it continues to send scientific data from Mars for eight years until it lost contact with Earth on 2022-Sept-27
