Chennai, Sep 14: Now this is one news the entire country has been following keenly since a year. ISRO's inception of Mars mission 'Mangalyaan' has completed 95% of its journey and is just 10 more days away from the red planet.

ISRO scientists said that all is well with the Mars Orbiter and it is heading towards Mars at blazing fast speed. The spaceship is just about four million kilometers away from its destination.

ISRO scientists have done a commendable job of not just successfully firing the Mars orbiter, rather they have also been able to successfully monitor and raise its limits.

The entire project has been carried out without much outside assistance.

ISRO officials said that the orbiter is successfully sending signals from a distance of 211 million km after covering 95% of its journey.

In a latest tweet ISRO while clearing every doubt said, "MOM keeps sending us vital information about the health of its various modules and measurements from sensors. This is called Telemetry signal. Today's telemetry confirms that MOM is in the pink of health. MOM uses 2.2 m High Gain Antenna to send us signals from the present distance of 211 million kilometer".

The Mars orbiter took off around 11 months ago and it is now on verge of finishing its hundreds of millions mile long journey.
