Because UK took lots of our gold and wealth during colonial period and left us in poverty and riots?


I think the term is 'reparations'

Chennai, Jun 2 (PTI) - Indian Space Research Organisation is likely to perform its next trajectory correction manoeuvre on its Mars Orbiter mission on June 11.

As its Mars mission is "on intended track" and was proceeding towards the red planet with "good health," ISRO had earlier announced that the trajectory correction manoeuvre scheduled for April was not necessary and postponed it for this month.

Yup. They're showing good precision. A good sign for its orbital insertion and the other missions they're planning for the next couple of years.
