8 years later, India’s first mission to Mars has finally run out of fuel

Scientists and engineers are having trouble calculating approximate mission durations for space exploration endeavours.

India's first Mars mission seems to have ran out of fuel eight years into its six-month mission.

The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), launched in 2013, reached Mars orbit in 2014.

After the eclipse, the craft's batteries were too low to restart.

India was among the first nations to send a probe to Mars and have it arrive safely.

ISRO should be proud of MOM's scientific data and efforts despite standstill.
