We've seen the great and inspiring launch of the mangalyaan from the Sri Harikota, Bengaluru. India advanced in the space program, and created it with the lowest cost, lower than the cost for constricting the golden gate bridge. So India's second step-the second indigenous military fighter plane-Tejes. It is said to be very lightweight, which helps in flying fast, and can clock in at 900 to 1000 km/ph, breaking the supersonic barrier. Second, this helps in doing many stunts and other tricks for wars, and for many air shows. It has been tested for carrying bombs, laser weapons, and India can prove that it is also a powerful nation in terms of backup, weapons, and most importantly, education. So may India grow up, develop more and inspire others.

I was up in the morning when I read a shocking News…..the great leader Nelson Mandela has died! I was very sad to hear this unpredicted news….
Here are some facts about this Great Leader

Served 27 years in prison, initially on Robben island (18 years), Pollsmor Prison and Victor Verster Prison.
Won the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, the US Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Soviet order of Lenin
Often referred by his Xhosa Clan name Madiba, or as Tata ("Father").

Personal Transit Pods.....Great feat by Masdar city
Oh, sure -- Masdar City's driverless pods may not make nearly as many stops as your average metro, but it essentially matches the usefulness of the subway station in Pyongyang. And with a lot less energy waste, to boot. If you'll recall, these driverless pods were planned years ago, and while the ambitions have been quelled somewhat thanks to the economic crunch, that hasn't stopped students and engineers from using 2GetThere's pods, magnets and a fiber optic system to create a two-stop transfer system at the university. For now, they're whisking students between a pair of drop points that are 800 meters apart, traveling 15 miles per hour and instilling fear into everyone who dares step inside. As for the future? Only The Jetsons truly know, but you can take a glimp

Mangalyaan - Isro's Mars Orbiter Mission spacecraft - successfully propelled itself on to an interplanetary trajectory and embarked on its 300-day journey to Mars in the wee hours of Sunday.
On November 19, the scientists had been positively ecstatic when the Mangalyaan - 70,000 km above the earth - sent back India's first colour images from an indigenously built camera. The scientists are now sure that other instruments on board are working fine
Isro on Sunday declared that there would be a total of four correctional manoeuvres of the trajectory during Mangalyaan's journey to Mars. The first manoeuvre will happen on December 11. The second and the third manoeuvres are planned for April 2014 and August 2014, and the final orientation will happen 10 days before Mars orbit insertion on September 14.
TIME LINE OF VOYAGE
Nov 5: PSLV-C25, in its twenty-fifth flight, successfully launches Mars Orbiter Mission Spacecraft
Nov 7: The first orbit-raising manoeuvre of the spacecraft
Nov 8: The second orbit-raising manoeuvre of the spacecraft, with a rocket burn time of more than 9 minutes. The observed change in apogee (the farthest point in an elliptical orbit) is from 28,814km to 40,186km.
Nov 9: The third orbit-raising manoeuvre
Nov 11: In the fourth orbit-raising operation, the apogee of the spacecraft was raised from 71,623km to 78,276km by firing up the rockets and imparting an incremental velocity of 35 metres/second against planned 130 metres/second to raise apogee to about 1 lakh km.
Nov 12: Fourth supplementary orbit-raising manoeuvre of the spacecraft. Apogee raised from 78,276km to 1,18,642km.
Nov 16: The fifth orbit-raising manoeuvre. Apogee is raised from 1,18,642km to 1,92,874km.
Dec 1 : Mangalyaan is finally propelled by Trans Mars Injection operations. The liquid engine burn time was more than 22 minutes which imparted incremental velocity was 647.96 m/sec and the craft embarks on its Mars journey
