China becomes the second country in the world after USA, to land a rover on Mars after its Tienwan-1 probe Zhurong successfully touched down on the red Planet. The rover will now study the planet's climate and geology for atleast 90 days.

This is a brilliant opportunity for China. Rover can not only study Mars. It can also discover unknown diseases and send back samples to Earth. Good luck finding cures and vaccines for unknown space diseases.

In India let us first set up proper health infrastructure in rural areas. Than we can consider wasting money on space. Apart from satellites. What good has ever come from space? Space Exploration is a useless hobby and wastage of resources of earth. More money needs to spend on research of human body which is grossly underfunded than on space.

Space is never a waste of resources. Pandemic like this are the very reason we need to explore mars and be interplanetary species to increase Survival chance of humans. By the way many technologies developed by ISRO and DRDO for space and defence purposes have helped us in fight against Chinese virus. Like Oxygen generator developed for LCA. It is never a waste of resources. It is a need. Investment on Every field of science is a need.

@iDJ More reason for space exploration.. Quoted from NDTV article-"The scientists later concluded that currently there was no technology available to stop a massive asteroid from wiping out the world. For deflecting the asteroid, they added, more time than six months would be required.

The scientists said in a statement that if confronted with the hypothetical scenario in real life “we would not be able to launch any spacecraft on such short notice with current capabilities.”

Humans are the virus that is killing its host and looking for new ones to infect.

Everyone knows everything, whatever we are facing today is our own sins.

It's not possible for humans to live in other planets without extracting resources from Earth. And inventions are made out of necessity. We would still have oxygen generators and medical drugs with or without ISRO and DRDO. Going to space is just hobby started by Nazis. Americans and Soviet continued to show their muscle power.

Greed. Developed world will put blame on India, China, Bangladesh etc. for carbon emissions. But it's the developed who demands unnecessary products which creates pollution. They moved production out of their own country to tackle pollution while polluting other parts of the world. Good part is China is opening it's eyes and had made commitments to become carbon neutral by 2060.
