    Tweeting from space has been done before, but that doesn’t mean that it gets any less fun, cool, or exciting.

    India is celebrating after successfully sending its first satellite into orbit around Mars. The country managed to pull off the impressive feat with its first attempt — unlike other missions — and you shouldn’t miss out on its Mars Orbiter which is tweeting from space like the best of them. And with humor.

    Yes, there are only three tweets at this point, but they are fun and from space, so we think this account is well worth following. If nothing else, it will broaden your horizons — quite literally.
