Re: Not bad in theory

"He" is not receiving state aid.

His wife ( who is an individual in her own right )

Is receiving money from the state and in return providing a service to the state.

It's not the same as someone receiving income from the state and providing nothing in return.

China plans astro-farms on Mars

Just a comment on the comments.

When a story like this appears featuring a Western country ( i.e. US to send people/rocket to moon/mars )

Half the comments are usually whining on about how they should be spending the money reducing world hunger and complaining that the whole venture is nothing but a waste of money.

When the Chinese do it - its all "congratulations and good luck"
