A true testament to the greatness of America.
No other nation can match our achievements or our dreams.
We will be the nation that brings man to the stars.

Thank you canada for this...
Curiosity carries a Canadian-made geology instrument that will enable the rover to determine the chemical composition of the rocks and soil on Mars.

Now how about you thank the US for getting it there?

we built the rockets, the ship, the entry module, the parachute, the sky crane, and the rover that houses your precious rock thingy.
oh, and it was our gas, and calculations that got it there, and our satellites and ground team to make the whole thing a go.

But thanks again for your damn hammer!
