OnlyM3: NASA slips further into irrelevance.
Quantum Apostrophe [TotalFark](favorite: 8010186 Said nothing was up there to slow a satellite when the link said it was in the atmosphere.)>>> OnlyM3: NASA slips further into irrelevance.No, you just have decades of head start. Other countries just see you like a big brother they want to imitate. They'll learn soon enough that getting pictures of dead rocks is just a hobby.
bbfreak>>> OnlyM3: NASA slips further into irrelevance.Nope. Nobody is close to being as relevant as NASA and while that might change sometime in the future with our lack of willingness to fund our space agency

Its not a competition and the more science the better in my opinion.
At the moment though, only NASA, ESA, and China are exploring beyond low earth orbit.
