Hardly any wars have been caused by religion. Of the few that have, most were caused by Islam.
Christians and Muslims have fought for centuries to try and knock each other off, and they are still doing the same thing today. Who will win? Hell if I know. :D

Indians have banned Pakistanis from their country.

Having lived for a long time in an area with a large Pakistani population, India is doing the right thing.

In the Phobos video, it says "Sol 3063". A sol is a Martian day, which is just 2.7% (40 minutes) longer than an Earth day. "Sol 3063" means that it was the 3063rd Martian day of Curiosity's mission on Mars. Today (22nd March) is Sol 31 for Perseverance.
