ISRO chairman K Radhdakrishnan announced at Sriharikota minutes after satellite separation ISRO had indicated that a perfect launch of the Rs 450-crore Mars mission would involve achieving a perigee of 250 km (nearest distance to earth) and an apogee of 23500 km (furthest distance from earth) The PSLV placed the spacecraft at a perigee of 2469 km and an apogee of 23566 km The satellite is placed well within the 675 km margin of error? said ISRO officials PSLV mission director P Kunhikrishnan said the 28263 degree argument of apogee achieved by the launch was only fractionally off the 28255 degree that would have been considered perfect The Earth orbit position that the PSLV parked the Mangalyaan spacecraft in on Tuesday is considered crucial since this will allow spacecraft scientistswho will now take over the missionto transfer Mangalyaan into a Mars-bound orbit (trans Mars insertion) on November 30 by using a minimal amount of fuel The launch of the Mars orbiter by ISRO has been timed to keep in tune with a 780-day occurrence where Mars comes within 55 million km distance of Earth as compared to the otherwise 400 million km distance This near perfect launch sets the ground for the minimum energy transfer of the spacecraft into the Mars orbit? said ISRO chairman K Radhakrishnan ISRO is following a strategy of space travel known as the Hohmann Transfer Orbit or a minimum energy transfer orbit to send the spacecraft from Earth to Mars with the least amount of fuel possible The PSLV has been providing India assured access to space After meticulous planning it has delivered another near perfect mission This is a small step in the Mars mission The journey from here to Mars will utilise less than a fraction of the energy used in this first phase? said S Ramakrishnandirector of the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre A loud cheer broke out in the ISRO mission control room during the PSLVs flight after about 33 minutes of flightwhen a ship bound terminal in the south Pacific picked up the course of the rocket There was some concern on thatand this is why there was a cheer when the ship terminal registered the flight and there was not much data lost? said the ISRO chairman Soon after the Mangalyaan spacecraft was placed in its designated temporary orbit around Earthoperations were conducted on it including the deployment of solar panels The spacecraft is in good health? said the ISRO chief Over the next few daysISRO willthrough a series of orbital raisingsput the MOM in a two lakh km orbit around Earth On December 1a sixth and final push will put

“under-the-table agreement” between the two parties “It is evident by the changing character of the TMC in Parliament that there has been a closed-door settlement with the BJP Initially the TMC was opposed to the Goods and Services Tax Bill and now they are for it saying it was part of their manifesto What is their new secret understanding and on what principles have their views changed we would

they had build ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections “There had been ‘achhe din’ for people like Lalit Modi and Vijay Mallya but for the rest of the Indians it has been ‘do saal bura haal’ (two years poor condition)” Gogoi said adding that the BJP’s tactic was fear-driven politics for the expansion of their rule in different state He slammed the Centre for “insensitivity and callous attitude” towards the severe draught condition prevailing in the country as well as not generating employment as promised “A recent statement of the government’s own labour ministry said that job growth had
