Congratulations to the scientists and engineers whose 10-month mission to Mars has successfully put a probe in orbit around the red planet. The success of the mission is a tribute to the hard work of many in India, and an inspiration to young people there to pursue science. It is also likely to lead to increased global interest in what India has to offer for space travel and transport, as they demonstrated an ability to reach this achievement with a lower budget than has been seen before. As India, the US and other countries work together to reach the frontiers of space exploration, the ability to communicate clearly and effectively will continue to be paramount. Listen to India’s Prime Minister talk about the accomplishment (in English) here.
