    Impact crater located SW of Huygens crater, imaged by Mars Color Camera (MCC)

    [​IMG]
    Image of impact crater located SW of Huygens crater, taken by Mars Color Camera (MCC) on 04-05-2015 at a spatial resolution of 30 m from an altitude of 576 km. Complex impact crater, superimposed over pre-existing crater is clearly seen in this image. This impact crater is having average diameter of 35 km. Terraces of complex impact crater and craters of small diameter distributed in this image are also seen.

    Gale crater is located near the northwestern part of the Aeolis quadrangle. The crater was named after Walter Frederic Gale, an Australian amateur astronomer of 19th century. Aeolis Mons rises (5.5 km) from the floor of the Gale crater. Gale crater formed when a meteor hit Mars in its early history, about 3.5 to 3.8 billion years ago. This image is taken by Mars Colour Camera on January 17, 2015 at an altitude of 9004 km with a resolution of 468 m.

    Isro Says 6-Month Mars Mission Will Now Last for 'Many Years'

    As it prepares to celebrate the first anniversary of its spacecraft's tryst with Mars, Isro Monday said the mission to the Red Planet will last for "many years" as there is not much of a "problem" and they have not had any failures so far. "Mars (mission) is expected to last for many years now, because it has gone through solar conjunction also; so we don't see much of a problem," Isro Chairman AS Kiran Kumar told reporters in Bengaluru. "We had planned it only for six months. Then we were not expecting so much fuel to remain after we completed our insertion activity," he said. Pointing out that about 35kg of fuel was still left, he said, "There is still a lot of fuel... all other subsystems are working fine and so far we have not had any failures." Kiran Kumar was speaking on the sidelines of Prof Satish Dhawan Commemoration Lecture that was delivered by Dr K Radhakrishnan, a former chief of the Indian Space Research Organisation ( Isro). The event was organised by the Institution of Engineers (India)'s Karnataka state centre in Bengaluru. Scripting space history, India on September 24, 2014, had successfully placed its low-cost Mars spacecraft in orbit around the Red Planet on its very first attempt, breaking into an elite club of three nations. Isro will mark the first anniversary of Mars Orbit Insertion by releasing an atlas containing photos taken by the colour camera on board the spacecraft.

    MCC image, taken on September 03, 2015 at an altitude of 6144 km with a resolution of 320 m, shows an intermediate sized shield volcano known as Tharsis Tholus. It is located in the eastern Tharsis region of the planet Mars. The Tharsis Tholus is dome-shaped with flank slopes ranging from less than 1° near the summit to up to 16° at the base. The average flank slope is 10°, making it one of the steepest volcanoes on Mars. The volcano rises to an elevation of about 9 km (5.5 miles).

    Olympus Mons is the largest volcano in the solar system which is present on planet Mars. The altitude of Olympus Mons is nearly three times the altitude of the largest peak on Earth, Mt.Everest. Tharsis volcanoes are Arsia Mons, Pavonis Mons and Ascraeus Mons. Tharsis Montes are product of volcanism and they are associated with tectonic processes which caused extensive crustal deformation in this area. Water vapor clouds are seen around mons top which is a usual phenomenon during this season in Mars. This image is taken by MCC on November 27, 2015 at an altitude of 32,282 km with a resolution of 1679 m

    You just stole my thoughts but Mars is too near so nuclear test can be detected.
    We should do it in deep space with this new monster rocket currently in study by a special team. It's told objectives are to sample return mission to Moon and to make an Indian Space Station in future.
    This rocket is enough powerful to penetrate as deep as in space where US eyes can't detect our test.
    Yet there are current concepts of launch vehicles in development:
    Format : GTO/LEO
    Medium:
    1.5t/4t
    Mid heavy:
    3t/8t
    4.5t/12t
    6t/15t
    Heavy:
    10-12t/2025t
    Super Heavy:
    Unknown/35t
    Unknown/67t
    Unknown/84t
    Unknown/100-150t
    I've watched these concepts in recent visit to Bangalore for a Science Quiz( with ISRO Scients themselves. :peace: I shaked hands with them)
    I've managed to get the official link of heavy rocket.

    Here are not details but you can discuss them in space forums.
    :D

    Latest Picture from Mars Orbiter
    [​IMG]
    This MCC picture portrays a large area of Mars covering almost 1800 km x 1800 km. MCC frames cover different extents according to the altitude of the spacecraft. MCC frame captures 20 km x 20 km when MOM is in perigee and the entire Mars Disc from altitudes 60,000 km onwards.

    The major features with high (bright) and low (dark) albedo regions are covered in this shot. High albedo regions are those covered by fine dust layer which are rich in ferrous oxide contents and the low ones represents bare rock basaltic regions.

    This image is taken on Dec 11, 2015 at an altitude of 16,547 km and resolution of 827 m.
