Joining us in person all the way from Bangalore for a conversation with The Sky at Night presenter Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE, Moumita Dutta will be discussing exactly how the ISRO managed to send a probe 33.9 million miles across the solar system to Mars for less than it cost to make the film Gravity, and enlightening us on India’s upcoming lunar mission.
