Following India's successful missions to the Moon and Mars, the next inter-planetary expedition launched by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) could be to Venus.

"Currently, discussions are going on... on Venus, Mars, any planetary system," ISRO Chairman A S Kiran Kumar told reporters.

"We have an advisory committee on Science with Professor U R Rao as the Chairman, so that committee will decide what should be our priority, what planets we should be doing, what science studies we should be doing," he added.

Last September, India further elevated its status among space-exploring countries when it placed its low-cost spacecraft in orbit around Mars, making history as the first country to succeed in its first try.

India's first lunar mission, Chandrayaan-1, was launched in 2008 and it helped confirm the existence of water on the Moon. A second lunar exploration mission - Chandrayaan-2, is being planned for launch during the next two to three years.
