Red Planet in hand, but red tape binds space firms

REGARDS, INDIA: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) scientists and engineers cheer after India's Mars orbiter successfully entered the Red Planet's orbit at their Spacecraft Control Center in Bangalore on September 24.

The Mars Orbiter Mission cost $74 million or about three-quarters of the amount spent in making the Oscar-winning movie 'Gravity' about astronauts stranded in space. REUTERS
