Russia says it is ahead in race to put man on Mars

Oh yea? Who gives a shit?

Russia is leading the race to complete a manned mission to Mars and could land a Russian on the Red Planet by 2025, a leading scientist was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

Russia is just itching for some attention. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought people stopped caring about who is the first back in middle school.

"We have something of a head start in this race as we have the most experience in piloted space flight," the director of the prestigious Space Research Institute, Lev Zelyony, told Interfax news agency on Tuesday.

Enjoy the red planet.

The goal of becoming the first country to land a human on Mars is "technically and economically achievable" by 2025, he said.

Ten bucks someone does it in 2024.

Does it mean the same, if you crash land on the red planet.
