BANGALORE, India: India won Asia’s race to Mars on Wednesday when its unmanned Mangalyaan spacecraft successfully entered the Red Planet’s orbit after a 10-month journey on a tiny budget. Scientists at mission control let up a wild cheer as the gold-colored craft maneuvered into the planet’s orbit at 8:02 a.m. (2:32 a.m. Manila time) following a 660-million kilometer (410-million mile) voyage.
