Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for as many folks in the space exploration game as possible and I’d really like to see more private space ventures, not just the very successful SpaceX…but if you’ve got a subcontinent full of some of the poorest folks in the world, with an economy that could be the brightest in the world if it weren’t for the babucracy (kleptomaniac bureaucrats), what the hell are you doing launching a mission to Mars?

More importantly, if you’ve got the ready cash to blow on $73 million orbiter, why is the United States ponying up $98.3 million in foreign aid to India this year?
