India's Pride - Mangalyaan
The red planet Mars has been worshipped as the God of anger and war since ancient times. Now we know Mars is not only the second nearest planet after Venus, it has also got the potential to harbour past, present as well as future life.
India created history in space exploration when Mangalyaan, the first Indian space probe to Mars, reached its destination successfully. The spectacular discoveries and some historical anecdotes come alive on the planetarium dome with its newly installed wide format video projection and a renovated multi-channel audio delivery system.
