In the news report, “ ‘Meaningful scientific experiments’ to be conducted on the Red Planet” (Nov. 5, 2013), the quote — “There are some overlapping objectives and at the point that we are both in orbit collecting data, we plan to work together with the data” — was wrongly attributed to Dr. K. Radhakrishnan, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation. Actually, it was stated by Dr. Bruce Jakosky, principal investigator for America's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission (Maven) , during a recent press briefing. The misattribution occurred during editing.

A sentence in “As Indian trawlers charge ahead, these fishermen are all at sea” (Nov. 4, 2013, International page) read: “Trying to put forth the rationale of fishermen across the Palk Straight …” It is Palk Strait.
