    This Retired Astronaut Says SpaceX and NASA Rockets ‘Will Never Go to Mars’

    A retired astronaut predicts that rockets developed by SpaceX, NASA, and Blue Origin won't succeed in landing human beings on Mars -- not because the technology won't work, but because the safety risks are too great. Chris Hadfield, who retired in 2013 from the Canadian Space Agency, told Business Insider he thinks the likelihood of regular missions to Mars with humans is unlikely. During a mission to the International Space Station in 2001, he helped install a mechanical arm outside the station, becoming the first Canadian to take a spacewalk.

    Forget Intel. Here Are 3 Better Chip Stocks to Buy

    Last month, I made the decision to sell my shares of chip giant Intel (NASDAQ: INTC). Although the company is exposed to some solid growth markets, like non-volatile memory-based storage drives, data center processors, and the booming computer gaming market, I've grown frustrated with the company's stumbles around its chip manufacturing technology -- something I fear will hurt the company's competitive positioning in the coming years. Until I see some real improvements in the company's manufacturing technology and can gain confidence that Intel isn't on the verge of seeing its market share and, potentially, its gross profit margin erode meaningfully, I'm staying out of the stock.

Iran, Venezuela and Iraq have resisted such a move ahead of a key summit between OPEC and its allies later this week in Vienna.
