India’s mission to Mars will take place between 2013-2015, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief G Madhavan Nair said on Monday.

“We have given a call for proposal to different scientific communities. Depending on the type of experiments they propose, we will be able to plan the mission,” he told PTI.

The mission is at conceptual stage and will be taken up after Chandrayaan-2, Nair said.

“Once in two years you get an opportunity for the mission,” Nair said.

ISRO Chairman is in Goa to host the eighth international conference on low cost planetary missions.

He said that like Chandrayaan-1, which had cost less than 100 million dollars, the mission on Mars will also be low cost space odyssey.
