checked with MOM

I've been curious about the ISRO Mars spacecraft MOM. Nothing noted on Spaceflight Now...

Surfed into the Indian Space Research Organisation web site. Learned that they test-fired the main engine at 1430 IST. They burned for 4 seconds, made a course correction, and changed their velocity.

Learned, from, that EDT and IST is 9.5 hours apart.

The orbit insertion is now scheduled for 24 Sep at 0717 IST. So, 23 Sep 2147 EDT.
