Twitter exchanges between ISRO, NASA on Mars mission

Bangalore: ISRO reached out to lakhs of social media users by giving a blow by blow account of the successful historic Mars Orbit Insertion today, even as it launched the MOM’s official Twitter handle, @MarsOrbiter.

Twitter exchanges between US Space agency NASA and ISRO on the Mars mission also formed a major highlight.

NASA whose MAVEN mission reached the Martian orbit only two days ago, congratulated the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on its historic feat.

“@NASA: We congratulate @ISRO for its Mars arrival! @MarsOrbiter joins the missions studying the Red Planet. #JourneyToMars,” NASA tweeted.

MAVEN team has also separately congratulated ISRO, as India scripted history becoming the first country to succeed in reaching the red planet in the maiden attempt.

It said- “#MAVEN team congratulates @ISRO for its #Mars arrival! @MarsOrbiter joins the missions studying the Red Planet. “Thank you MAVEN team!,” ISRO tweeted its acknowledgment of the message.

ISRO also launched the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM)’s official Twitter handle, @MarsOrbiter.

“What is red, is a planet and is the focus of my orbit?” tweeted the official handle of ISRO’s Mars Orbiter. “I’ll be back after breakfast. Good ol’ sunlight. It’s good for your battery,” read the handle’s second tweet.
