Mission To Mars, But What About Here?

The people of India proudly launched a rocket for their first mission to explore The planet Mars. Just wondering how much of those millions could have gone to explore getting the poor out of the slums of Mumbai or put into the health care if a nation that desperately needs it. I think the cost of the mission could probably build housing for a few thousand people. Hmm. Priorities.

  1. Maybe they’re worried about the asteroid heading this way during the year 2029. Asteroid 2004 MN4 It sweeps back around, I believe in 2036.

    I totally agree with taking care of the home planet first.

      Maybe. Just boggles the mind on how much is spent on space exploration, especially from a country where the majority live below the poverty level.
