You should ask yourself this question: are your friends/family/neighbors/complete strangers going to be more impressed that you went to either Mumbai/Pune, or to Mars?

Are the same friends/family/neighbors/complete strangers going to be more grateful for a small sample of soil from Mars, or some trinket from Mumbai/Pune?


You really need to look at the Bigger Picture!

I rest my case.

Practically, the Mumbai loop is going to have more immediate benefit. However, long term the opposite may well be true. We know now, how many benefits were derived from the Lunar program of the 60s.
