The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), is a space probe orbiting Mars since 24 September 2014. It was launched on 5 November 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is India's first interplanetary mission and ISRO has become the fourth space agency to reach Mars, after the Soviet space program, NASA, and the European Space Agency. It is the first Asian nation to reach Mars orbit, and the first nation in the world to do so in its first attempt.

MOM Logo Decoded ! MOM logo is a blend of the radiant red shade of Mars and the soothing blue serenity of mother Earth ! It depicts the transition of ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission spacecraft from Earth to Mars and also its intended orbit around Mars. It’s impossible to miss the astronomical symbol of planet Mars embedded into the logo and also the striking similarity of shades this logo shares with the ISRO logo.
