China and India, both nuclear powers, are now engaged in a “space race.” Something leads me to believe that this can’t end well.
China got one step closer to its ultimate goal of putting dissidents on Mars when they put their first person into orbit in 2003. But now India says they plan to beat China to the moon, with the expressed goal of opening a 7-11 near the Ravi crater by 2020. China will be racing to beat them there.
What could possibly go wrong?
