The scientific community of UK gave an unequivocal thumbs up to India’s Mars mission on Tuesday, saying the venture has put the country firmly on the map of international space exploration.

“It is good news for international space science that India is demonstrating this sort of capability. Perhaps in future, India will be able to offer launch capability for other missions,” said John Bridges, expert in Mars research from the University of Leicester.

“I think this mission really brings India to the table of international space exploration,” Andrew Coates from the UK’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory told BBC.
