India. China. Iran.
Geography aside, what do these countries have in common?
A race into space.
According to FastCompany, “Several foreign space agencies are embarking on new projects involving manned spaceflight and out-there exploration.”
India‘s second lunar probe will take place in 2014. In November, China will launch a satellite to Mars. And Iran, having previously sent turtles and worms into the galaxy, is now preparing to send a monkey in a Safir rocket out into the cosmos.
As for the U.S., first official moonwalker, Neil Armstrong, is not as optimistic about NASA’s position in the space race.
