Is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling that President Trump and others in his administration don’t see any difference between unauthorized immigrants and those residing in our country legally?

The cheapest trip to Mars probably won’t leave from Cape Canaveral but from a tiny Indian island called Sriharikota. The island has become the Launchpad of the Indian Space Program, that has shot more than 120 satellites into orbit until today, and at a much more competitive price than its competitors.

India competes for commercial launches with space agencies in Europe and Japan, and with private players such as Elon Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin LLC.
