    So why don't you do something about it instead of complaining?

    Russia, US & China have put men into space by themselves. India managed to send a small probe to the moon. EU, Japan, and many others have advance space programs. Sri Lanka is still daydreaming about Ravana's "Dandu Monara".

    Do what? There is nothing left to do other than complain. We can't even get projects without massive bribes. Ever bothered looking at R&D budgets of the more advanced nations? The effort they put in to R&D? How they involve universities and other institutes as well as the private sector? How innovation are encouraged even at grass-root levels? And, don't forget SL suffers from serious brain-drain. Our best minds keep leaving the country.
