Bangalore: As India's space probe got into the Earth's orbit Tuesday for a nine-month long odyssey to Mars, the popular social media site Facebook will keep you posted on its adventurous voyage to the red planet.

"We have opened an account on Facebook to regularly update the public on our Orbiter spacecraft during its journey to Mars and its scientific observations for over six months from Sep 24, 2014," a top space agency official told IANS.

As the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) will last at least 16 months, the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) wants to sustain the interest of the people in its maiden interplanetary exploration and keep them informed.

"We want the people to live with us on this fascinating mission to Mars through the long journey and later when our spacecraft orbits the Red Planet, 250 million miles away," ISRO chairman K. Radhakrishnan said.
