PICTURE: India's future deep space exploration plans

The slide shows the payload capability of PSLV, GSLV and GSLV-Mk III to Mars, Venus and Asteroid belt respectively. The slide also shows the asteroids under consideration to send orbiters viz Toutatis, Apollo, Eros, Itokawa and Vesta. More importantly, the slide gives the date of the Mars mission as 2015, which would be somewhat difficult to achieve given the schedule of ISRO.
