China & India Launch Ambitious Space Missions

Both China and India are impressing the scientific world with their efforts to reach into space with two separate space missions, proving the technical levels of success by both nations. China launched their effort to put a lunar rover on the surface of the Moon, while India has launched a Mars orbiter that will take about year to fly to the red planet. China hopes to eventually land a manned crew on the Moon, while India appears more interested  in Mars scientific exploration.

Predictably, both countries are full of national pride right now, that should only increase with the success of both missions.
