Mission Mangal (2019)

After the failed launch of GSLV-F06 on December 25, 2010, due to a small mistake by Project Director Tara Shinde, Rakesh Dhawan, a fellow scientist working with her, takes the blame for her. As a result, he is relocated to work on Mangalyaan as punishment. The MoM (Mars Orbiter Mission) is thought of as an impossible mission by his coworkers due its aim of reaching Mars with its tight budget.

Tara, meanwhile, joins a new and better team. Rakesh then learns that MoM cannot take off on the PSLV since the available technology has a payload of only 1500 kgs and not enough fuel to fire the rocket to be carried to a distance of almost 5.5*10^7 kilometres. GSLV, if it had succeeded, could have taken the satellite to Mars as it had a payload of 2.3*10^3 kgs. However recent significant failures of GSLV have jeopardized the planned future missions.
