Luxury!
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

India launches spacecraft on Moon-landing mission
Space Daily

Puts them about where the USA was in 1966. 8)

That's overly cynical. We've made huge progress in the right directions (telescopes, probes, robots) while ignoring pseudo-progress in the wrong directions (ISS, human Mars missions). Putting humans anywhere except behind a blackboard is a fucking waste. Meat bags are meant for classrooms.

Space travel is a good thing in and of itself.

Lister hates The Future. :cry:

I agree, but as Rob said, not for meatbags. We have to sit in a pub enjoying a cool beer while our robots explore dangerous places for us. (Before revolting and dooming us all, of course.)
