    New Delhi may soon approve the ambitious Mars mission which is planned for launch in November 2013. The project is in the final stage of approval and studies relating to the mission have been completed by ISRO scientists.

    India's mars orbiter may not be on the same scale as that undertaken by NASA's car-sized rover. The orbiter will be launched from Sriharikota in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh. The project is to cost the ex-chequer US $22.6 million.

    The Mars mission will involve carrying out nine scientific experiments. The robot will be launched on a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-XL), which also was used for India's Moon mission, Chandrayaan-1. The orbit will be 500 X 80,000 km around Mars, and the mission will carry nearly 25 kg (55 lb.) of scientific payloads.

    The main objective of the mission will be to focus on life, climate, geology, origin, evolution and sustainability of life on the planet. A significant amount of work has been completed and the scientific payloads have been shortlisted and awaiting government approval.

    ISRO has achieved some success with its lunar orbiter Chandrayaan-1 which was the first to discover the presence of water molecules on the Moon.
