INDIA LAUNCHES MARS-BOUND SPACECRAFT


India on Tuesday launched its first spacecraft bound for Mars, a complex mission that it hopes will demonstrate and advance technologies for space travel. 
Hundreds of people watched the rocket carrying the Mars orbiter take off from the east coast island of Sriharikota and streak across the sky. Many more across the country watched live TV broadcasts.
Officials at the space centre described it as a "textbook launch." If the mission is successful, India will become only the fourth nation to visit the red planet after the Soviet Union, the United States and Europe. 
"Capturing and igniting the young minds of India and across the globe will be the major return from this mission," mission director P. Kunhikrishnan said from the launch site.
