Today India gears up for its first mission to Mars, which if successful, would make it the first Asian nation to reach the Red Planet. The unmanned Mars Orbiter spacecraft is scheduled for lift-off on Tuesday afternoon from Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR located on Sriharikota Island off the coast of the southern state of Andhra Pradesh.
As this historic moment, may I remind you about the time that I sent the first mouse to Mars (photographic evidence is just below)?
After the mission the mouse reported that he felt lonely out in space as the trek was too long but he was extremely proud to boldly go where no mouse or man has gone before. However on reaching there he was quite disturbed to find that there was no evidence of cheese on the surface of Mars and a detailed study revealed that there has never ever been any cheese on Mars. He was traumatized by this discovery and has been in psychiatric care since he returned.
