The success of the Mars mission has generated a considerable amount of interest in science research among young people, ISRO scientist Raju Hutton said in Bidar.

The Associate Vehicle Director at Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvanantapuram, was speaking to students of Gnyana Sudha Vidyalaya in Bidar. He explained about the Mars Orbiter Mission and explained how such explorations would help advance science. He also revealed how systematic work by a team of dedicated scientists ensured that the spacecraft travelled for over 11 months to reach the Mars orbit. He asked young people to consider scientific research as a career option and urged them to focus on the dangers of climate change and think of solutions.
