India's Mars Orbiter Mission, which is otherwise known as Mangalyaan, have sent a set of new 3D images of the red planet. The orbit sent by India's premier space agency, the Indian Space Research Organisation or ISRO has sent pictures of the largest canyon system in the solar system called Valles Marineris. The Valles Marineris canyon system is 5000 km long and has many chasmas or valleys.
The Spectacular images captured by Mars Colour Camera (MCC) and show the Ophir Chasma terrain of the Valles Marineris. ISRO said in a statement that the images were taken on July 19, 2015 at an altitude of 1, 857 km.
A total of five spacecraft are now in orbit on the Red planet. Nasa's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) and India's Mars Orbiter Mission (Mangalyaan) were the latest to join 2003 Mars Express from ESA (the European Space Agency) and the 2001 Mars Odyssey and the 2006 Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), both of NASA. NASA is also working to ensure that the probes do not collide with each other.
ISRO is now planning to launch a second mission, Mangalyaan 2 with a better scientific payload to Mars between 2018 and 2020.
