Any inter-planetary mission would be incomplete if it were not mapping the resources of a new region. India's Mangalyaan is carrying on it a very special thermometer called 'Thermal Infrared Imaging Spectrometer' that will look for the cold and hot spots on Mars through which R P Singh, an ISRO scientist, hopes to map the mineral resources of Mars since each mineral has a special thermal signature. Speaking exclusively to NDTV's Science Editor Pallava Bagla, he says is it exciting to map minerals of another planet some 200 million kilometres away. (For more on India's Mars Mission, click here.)
