Indian spacecraft missions to the planet Mars already started the process of preparing to travel for 300 days.

Indian spacecraft will arrive at Mars orbit on Sept. 24

On Sunday morning before the space shuttle main engines that have already enabled forever 20 minutes to look at the right speed when leaving the Earth's orbit later.

The aircraft will travel a distance of 680 million kilometers, and is planned to reach Mars orbit on September 24 next year.

Towards Orbit Mars Mission (MOM) or known as Mangalyaan designed to demonstrate the ability of the technology that is able to bring the plane to the orbit of Mars.

In the mission cost U.S. $ 72 million or about Rp826,28 billion, India will also conduct a number of studies and trials such as knowing the content of methane in the planet's atmosphere.

The research head Indian Space Organisation (Isro) K Radhakrishnan said the operation to leave the earth's orbit has been passed by both.

Since its launch on Nov. 5, the spacecraft has made progress while in earth orbit, although a number of issues related to the supply of fuel and power of aircraft engines still they encountered.

Isro officials say a number of improvements have been made to the aircraft.
The mission to find the presence of methane gas in around the orbit of Mars have previously performed projects developed through NASA, but they failed to find the methane gas content.

If the project is being developed by India successfully detect methane gas, one of the possible sources of origin of the gas is derived from microbes exist on Mars and the possibility of living under the planet's land surface. However Methane or CH4 can also be produced from geological processes including volcanic explosion.
