China spent 7 times more than India on space; US 13 times
While India’s Isro spent about $1.5 billion in 2018, US’ Nasa spent $19.5 billion and China’s CNSA spent $11 billion (see table for more).
India is far ahead of all the listed countries in launches and very cost effective. It doesn't matter how much we spent but how much we succeeded is the matter
China is Nothing compared with India. ISRO launched 104 satellites in one go, just landed on the Moon. Mars mission is and will be at least 20 years ahead of China. China has long way to march behind India.,China steals/copies everything whereas India keeps on creativity.,China focuses on quantity only whereas India focuses on quality.,It is India good in both science & technology and democracy freedom, China is nothing but a shxt when compared with India in space and aeronautics technology.
We keep that money in safe havens for use in case of famine. 5 Trillion. India is ranked 102 of 117 countries in the Global Hunger Index 2019, behind its neighbours Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh.1/3rd of the world''s hungry live in India. 836 million Indians survive on less than Rs. 20 (less than half-a-dollar) a da
INDIA has fast reaching parity with CHINA&more than that WE DID IT NOT BY STEALING FROM USA.
Not sure what else the clown of a reporter is trying to say, even though the difference in money spent on space programs by the countries is known. India is by far the least expensive space program with impressive results. India is more brain than money.

India is on right track in space technology. How much China has spent or US has spent. In few years Indian Space program will overtake China and US. India has got outstanding space scientists and engineers.
boasting Indians• Ashok Kumar H
Best wishes and luck to Indian space program, but do not boast/brag so much
Indians always find ways to claim they are world first, world best, world superpower, world this, world that, even world cheapest. Why do Indians like it so much?
comparison is made like an ignorant! quality of projects are most important.
ISRO and all other institutions are brain child of Pandit Nehru. ISRO is doing spectacular performance with low cost of satellite projection. Congratulations to team ISRO.
Expenditure is not important when what you spend achieves the national goal without relative wastage.
Fine that India ,China and USA are spending lot of money on space exploration. It would be better if some amount is spent on Medical Reserch to contain deadly disease like cancer and to eradicate the virus like that of Corona.Let us first make our Earth worth living and disease free. More efforts should be made to prevent Global Warming .
Should the space expenditures be part of another contest between countries?
change my name if ISRO doesn't do something biggest/huge
thse country thats very huge amount they have spent. our scientists are great they have achieved more progress with very low cost in small
NASA doesn’t launch satellites. They work on deep space stuff. Wrong comparison
India’s success space aviation is outstanding based on the budget allocated.
ISRO send 101 satellites in 1 go. China need to send 10 times to match number of satellites that ISRO send. Further cost of / rocket is only 1/10 of these country spend.
India toys• fggbhh
All those 101 nano/micro toy satellites of India lasted a few days and became space debris. India must ask France to launch a 3.7 tonne satellite but counted as an India launch. India needs to launch 10 times to match one satellite of Japan or China
Incorrect headline, firstly in terms of no of rocket launches we are ahead of even Japan. secondly comparing expenditure with china and US is incorrect, there are economy are equally higher than us. 3 point our satellite are cost effective and carry several nano satellites. regret to say just HEADLINES could have also portray positive aspect of India space program
every country needs to work with their available resources only. India has lot of other important priorities towards poor people, which supercede this.
What a farce! Why does India compare to China, the USA, Russia etc.. They are light-year ahead of economic way. First India should improve her economy than talk big. Still a significant portion of population are defaecating under the open sky.
Congratulations to our scientists.
US GPS, China BeiDou and Russia GLONASS, each with over 30 satellites, all cover the entire globe. EU's regional Galileo is non-functional. India's Regional Navigation Satellite System is the best.
and our scientists got a pay cut last year!! given that they make peanuts compared to their counterparts in US/China a cut in salary is really shameful act by go nment.
how much they spend on space and defence it will not help them in fighting Corona Virus
We are able to challenge them cost wise
