ISRO's Mars Orbiter snaps a nice picture of the highest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons, which is 3 times higher than Mt Everest. Other mountains like Arsia, Pavonis and Ascraeus can be seen along with the Valles Marineris, the largest canyon in the solar system:


Meanwhile, the GSLV-MarkIII will launch at end of November / start of December:
