> More than half the world’s previous attempts — 23 out of 41 missions — have failed, including one by Japan in 1999.
- hur hur hur (trying to laugh to keep from crying) - Did i mention morons? (At least) One of these missions failed, because they didn't get unit conversions (m/kg/s -- foots/inches/pounds/&c) right. What a sad species, which calls itself "sapiens sapiens"
" It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity." -- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

And it has become appallingly obvious that even our technological progress is impeded by our competitiveness, inability to cooperate, and general neuroticity and stupidity.

India should be focusing on the rape crisis in their country instead of fiddling with irrelevant toys. Thanks Naoko
