ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is planning for its second Mars mission, Mars-2 in 2018. This new mission is likely to aim at putting a rover on the distant red planet; capable of performing experiments. ISRO is already working on developing new technologies to make the mission successful. Business Today reports that ISRO satellite director, S Shiva Kumar informed the reporters in Bangalore. The ISRO game plan entered the next level after it successfully completed the Mars Orbiter Mission, by putting a satellite in Martian orbit on September 24th.

The Mars-2 will take priority only after ISRO's planned mission to the moon, called 'Chandrayaan-2', scheduled in 2016. The Chandrayaan-2 will carry ISRO's lander and rover to the moon. Space enthusiasts may already know that the opportunity to launch any mission to Mars arrives once every two years and ISRO's booked the 2018 slot. The learnings from the Chandrayaan-2 mission will enable engineers and scientists at ISRO to develop a better lander and rover for Mars.


ISRO is aiming to build fully operational heavy rockets in the next 2-3 years to carry payloads of communication satellites, lander and rover. It's already developed GSLV-Mk III capable of carrying about 2-3 tonnes of payload to ~36,000 kilometers above Earth.
