Officials from Indian’s national space agency hailed the successful launch of ‘Saral’ this Monday, along with six other micro-satellites which were on board.

Built in collaboration with the French, Saral is on a mission to study the world’s oceans. The launch marks the 23rd mission for India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle.

Next stop Mars. India also has plans to send a spacecraft to the Red Planet.
