    India announce major mission to Mars

    Four years after successfully launching a moon probe, India has decided to make another ambitious space effort by sending an orbiter to Mars in November 2013.

    Looks like the entire developed and developing world is getting in on it. This is russia's manned moon plans by 2018 http://www.usmessageboard.com/scien...-building-moon-spaceship-eyes-lunar-base.html

    India has wonderful space technology.

    It's just that the headlights don't work.

    I wish they would just send a few men and transport them to the surface. A few old ones that are willing to just go

    That is fucking awesome!!!

    Somewhat confused though on the 300 day journey.
    I believe the first Mars rover only took 8 months and I'm pretty sure the one currently in route (scheduled to land in four short days) will have taken a total of 7 months.

    Check this out if you've not seen it...
