India's Mars Orbiter craft has run out of propellant
and its battery drained beyond the safe limit,
fuelling speculation that the country's maiden interplanetary mission 'Mangalyaan'
may have finally completed its long innings.
The ₹ 450 crore Mars Orbiter Mission was launched
onboard PSLV-C25 on November five, 2013,
and the MOM spacecraft was successfully inserted
into Martian orbit on September 24, 2014 in its first attempt.
"Right now, there is no fuel left. The satellite battery has drained,"
sources in the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) told PTI.
