America has succeeded where Russia's recent Mars mission (Fobos-Grunt) failed. And Britain's Mars mission (Beagles II) failed. And most of Japan's recent missions have had major problems.

After no Mars missions in the 1980s and a few failures in the 1990s, JPL-NASA have had flawless landings for Spirit & Opportunity, Phoenix and Curiosity. Good on 'em. They do it better than any other country.

Where's China?
