£114m.

Almost exactly the same as the budget for the distinctly average Die Another Day, James Bond film. Which was made 17 years ago.

This information is partly fact and partly opinion.

But Die Another Day made a profit, as opposed to making an entire nation look stupid. It's a pretty inaccurate comparison.

And Soho, at least they were landing on the dark side of the moon [;)]

‘Die Another Day’ brought the whole world into disrepute. It took ‘Casino Royale’ to get some credibility back into the franchise, at a cost of one space station, one moon base, and six months of looking at ‘Parade’ on Thunderbird 5.

Cool. what the film industry has to do with I have no idea, but you do like deflection, so that’s probably it.

How much did ‘die another day’ make financially?
The moon probe, did that make any money?

OK a better example.

"Mars Needs Moms" was a pretty bad film by all accounts and made the biggest loss in Disney history. The film budget was actually higher than the Indian Moon Probe.

"Capricorn One" is a decent film about making movies and space exploration.

With a budget of £4m, a film about pretending to send men into space and then see the pretence turn into a pretend space failure; was pretty good value compared to the space probe in question.

We don't provide any aid at all to India.

But it interesting that you bring this up.

Th UK spends more on foreign aid, than it does to be a member of the EU.

Foreign Aid and EU membership - over £20 billion each year.

Eye wateringly mind boggling.

Sixthswan,in 2018the Dept for International Trade Development donated £52m to India.This was to be followed by £46m in 2019/20.

Charleyfarley. A donation to India which was intended to help boost trade for the benefit of both countries. That isn't "aid".

By the way, the UK is committed to continue foreign aid payments, which will exceed the annual cost of EU membership - if even Brexit happens.

So we will continue to give money away for no economic return, but stop paying into the EU, which provides an economic return.

Makes sense...

Yes. The Indian Space Research Organisation, with a budget of £1.5bn was utterly reliant on a small foreign investement from the UK.

The DFID stuff is all here in attached link.

But you carry on believing in stories planted by Tory MPs in the press...

We pay £5.7bn a year to be part of the Single Market (Institute of Fiscal Studies).

In return the UK beenfits to the tune of £91bn (Confederation of British Industry).

Don't be one of those who "knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."

I haven't seen it. The last Bond movie I saw was Tomorrow Never Dies. I have no love of the Bond franchise, even after sharing a house with someone who not only had the entire canon but also the Norwegian version of two or three films dubbed into English. He didn't speak Norwegian, otherwise I'd have thrown him out.

Possibly there was a different way of phrasing that so as not to have me mobilising to battle stations, but that's up to you. Mac's got your back, at any rate - anyone who's got drunk with him is a fine and upstanding fellow, anyone who hasn't is a patronising c'nt. Seems reasonable to me.

Yes, it's a krapp film. Most of the Bond films are. It's a subject me and sabre have discussed on here before. There are a few that I love for various reasons, some of them not very convincing for anyone else. From about Golden Gun to Casino, they're gut-wrenchingly awful, cheesy.

Oh, is this about films or moon landings?

Well it should be about the books, but nobody's read them. It's a shame that after Craig's first two-film renaissance, Bond films still have the same magic that they had in their prime: none whatsoever.

I am in solidarity with the Indian Moonraker project.

I think I'd have more sympathy with the Indian Moonraker expedition if it were designed to get more understanding of space rather than get Indian presence on the moon, confirming what we already know about lunar ice.

I need understanding of space because I'm going to die soon, and I'll probably die without gaining any more knowledge of the geysers on Enceladus (one of Saturn's moons) which throw gas and dust a thousand kilometres into the air. Beat that, Yellowstone.

I think we can all remember where we were when the disastrous news came back about Beagle 2.

We had things to learn from that Mars expedition. All right, probably not that much, but at least they were exploring a place where there was a complex eco-system once upon a time, which is interesting, only probably not true, but we've got to find that out for sure.

The only reason we're at all interested in the moon is because it's close and looks nice.

I'm all for the exploration of space, regardless of which nation is undertaking the mission.

Though now you've got me thinking. One day we will all die. Everyone that comes after us will also die. The sun will die. The earth will die. There will be nothing left of our entire existence, except the signals and probes we have sent out, that drift in endless nothingness. Even Brexit will be null and void; I think.
