Blasting into history!

Doesn't it feel wonderful? The PSLV launched a record 10 satellites into orbit in a single mission, proving India's emergence as a major competitor in the multi-billion-dollar space market.

The rocket first put into orbit the 690-kilogram remote-sensing Indian satellite, Cartosat-2A, followed by an 83-kilogram Indian mini-satellite and a cluster of eight nano-satellites, each weighing between 3 and 16 kilograms, built by research institutions from Europe, Canada and Japan.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
