Now a way to determine meteorites from Mars and hence potentially from Mercury.

What would the chance s of China or India having a race to Mercury? That is what I'd like to see rather than a race to Mars. Just how effective has the Indian space program been in any case?

If I survive everything else I'll be 78 when that asteroid collides/misses the Earth. It is going to be a long haul whatever way.

Large asteroid not likely to hit Earth in 2032 - NASA

US: A newly discovered 1,300-foot-wide asteroid that buzzed past Earth last month will likely return in 2032, but the chances that it will hit our planet are very slim - just 1 in 63,000 - NASA has said.

The asteroid 2013 TV135 made a close approach to Earth on September 16, when it came within about 6.7 million kilometres and it is likely to pay our planet another visit in 2032. However, NASA has allayed fears that the massive space rock could prove dangerous, with the US space agency saying that the probability this asteroid could then impact Earth is only one in 63,000.

"To put it another way, that puts the current probability of no impact in 2032 at about 99.998 per cent," said Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object Programme Office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

The asteroid was discovered on October 8, 2013, by astronomers working at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory in Ukraine.

From a quick search on the topic it appears as if the Indian space science is quite sophisticated.

I suppose it is easier for countries to copy the feats of the USA and Russia than it was for these countries when they pioneered the space flight technology.
