A couple of people during the conference did acknowledge the other countries that supplied help to NASA, but it's still a primarily American mission, and Curiosity was built here in the States.INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION RULZ
No question is primarily an American project, and that NASA is properly acknowledging the contribution of it's international partners. My quibble was with the OP's chest thumping. There are 10 science packages, from the USA, Canada, Spain, and Russia. NASA used the antennae array in Australia to stay in contact. That is 5 countries that have contributed important technology to the project that I can name off the top of head, simply from news coverage. This doesn't count all the engineers and scientists from other nations who are simply hired by NASA to fill important jobs. I am not bring to take any thing away from NASA.... they are the best at what they do. And one of the ways they do that is by asking other nations to contribute to the project as well.A couple of people during the conference did acknowledge the other countries that supplied help to NASA, but it's still a primarily American mission, and Curiosity was built here in the States.
I am looking forward to seeing what they can dig up. This is going to be an exciting couple of years for Mars news.It was great to see well over a hundred thousand people watching NASA's live stream, and that doesn't include other streams or anyone watching via Xbox Live.
