Indian Satellite Orbits Mars

India now has a satellite orbiting Mars.  Until now, the only satellites in Martian orbit were from Russia, the European Union, and the U.S.  That makes India the first Asian country to make it to Mars, and it’s the only country to get there on its first try.  Good for India, and good for us.  As we retreat from the world, I’m glad to see someone other than our geopolitical adversaries make advances.
