The thing I love about this part of the Planet. Is how it totally ignores the other two contributors of this part of history. They both reached Mars before the 'great NASA mission' and yet, it is as if, they don't exist.
Well, we probably should be happy when this half of the planet pays any attention to science at all.
There's been plenty of coverage of Hope and Tianwen-1 to be fair. My news feeds are biased to that sort of stuff though!
