I wrote about India’s mission to Mars a while back, and now that spaceship has finally reached Mar’s orbit.

And all of this for less than the cost of what it took to make Gravity.

I think the New York Time’s article say’s it best though.

One a shoestring, India sends orbiter to Mars on it’s first try.

The trip cost India $74 million. Gravity on the other hand cost $100 million. Ironic?
