Question
Sir,could you say about method of sending satellite (like rover curosity and mangalyan)planet to planet?and its principle?

Answer
Mugesh - I am not sure I understand your question. Curiosity and Mangalyan are rovers, not satellites. In any case, both satellites and rovers have been sent to Mars. In principle, vehicle rovers could be sent to any planet with a solid surface. A fluid surface would require a boat-type rover. The only limitation is distance, expense and rocket capability. When distance gets too great, communication becomes difficult. But who knows what the future holds.
