"In November, India took the next step in their space program by launching their Mangalyaan Mars orbiter. The orbiter won't arrive for a while yet, but they've managed to get some public attention for a different reason: the fact that the entire mission costs only 75 million dollars, substantially less than the budget for the hit movie 'Gravity.'
While the question of wages is bound to come up (it was only 15% of the budget of the project), I think we can all agree that bringing down the cost of interplanetary space travel to a level attainable by the ultra-rich is a good step forward."
Of course India is going to Mars, it is the tandoori planet!
If you're going for the comedy mod, should have gone for something like every time NASA calls MAVEN after hours, they get Mangalyaan who identifies himself as "Bob" and tells them to reinstall Windows no matter what NASA says.
I'm in literal tears over here.
We've all dealt with a script monkey that sounds like they would rather die than think for any reason.
Kind of sad that the racist joke gets +5...
