Not quite- Russia was actually the first nation to successfully land on Mars.  Mars 3 landed in 1971, more than 5 years before Viking.

Admittedly, it failed less than 2 minutes after touchdown, but we know the landing was successful

its not quite the same as cheating on a written test.

It would be more like if your friends cheated their way through dental school but still managed to do a successful root canal on a live patient without farking up.

China didn't cheat their way out of our gravity well. They didn't cheat their way 150m miles away. They didn't cheat their way through landing or retaining communication with the rover. Did they base their rover off of stolen tech, probably. but they still had to properly build launch and operate that tech. and that is something no other country besides the US has done successfully. and yea that is impressive.

Lemme guess you don't use numbers or acknowledge the names of of like 90% of the stars we can see because they were Arabic Muslim achievements?

Stealing tech and successfully landing that tech on Mars are 2 separate issues. How do you propose we punish them? By pretending it didn't happen is stupid.

Oh and no one called you a racist. You inferred that all on your own.

Na see I didn't deflect anything. I answered both of your points directly.

I chose Arabic Muslim so be specific about the example I chose.

Would you preferred to be asked which country achieved the first satellite in orbit?

Deflection is what you did when you chose not to answer how you would punish China for stealing tech and instead chose to play the victim.

Oh really. By far the hard part is entry, decent and landing and this probe did in a completely different manner than Opportunity and Spirit.  The Chinese rover is bigger than O. and S.  This rover has different instruments. This rover came with an orbiter. Details matter. And the details are different except for details that I have a hard time imagining anyone doing it differently.

That's awesome, but I have concerns.

A) That China won't release as much data as the US, preferring the squirrel it away so they can gain a competitive advantage
B) That they'll try and use that competitive advantage to lay claim to Mars, like they're doing with the South China Sea.

Need a moon/Antarctic treaty for Mars and other bodies if we don't have one already. Or something like:

"Every human on Mars up to number 1,000,000 gets a free acre, and the government on their passport also gets an adjacent acre. Acres can be inherited and/or sold.

Corporations get nothing, they can only buy from existing plots.

However the first human for a government gets to place their marker, and that is also where their government marker goes, and all following markers must be adjacent to an existing marker from their nationality.

After 1,000,000, an independent Mars government will be formed with equal participation from every existing nation who can make decisions on the rest of the planet and will immediately gain an equal million acres (public services) that cannot be sold. The rest of the land has no ownership until population X"

China is the only other country besides the US to successfully land a rover on Mars. stolen old tech or not it is an accomplishment.

I had classmates in dental school that cheated their way to graduation. Cheating or not, I guess that still impresses you.

its not quite the same as cheating on a written test.

It would be more like if your friends cheated their way through dental school but still managed to do a successful root canal on a live patient without farking up.

China didn't cheat their way out of our gravity well. They didn't cheat their way 150m miles away. They didn't cheat their way through landing or retaining communication with the rover. Did they base their rover off of stolen tech, probably. but they still had to properly build launch and operate that tech. and that is something no other country besides the US has done successfully. and yea that is impressive.

Lemme guess you don't use numbers or acknowledge the names of of like 90% of the stars we can see because they were Arabic Muslim achievements?

There you go. Just claim everyone is a racist. That way, no one has to answer for stealing proprietary information.  It's the Fark way

Nobody better tell this guy where America got its rocket technology.

It was forced upon them

dyhchong: That's awesome, but I have concerns.

A) That China won't release as much data as the US, preferring the squirrel it away so they can gain a competitive advantage
B) That they'll try and use that competitive advantage to lay claim to Mars, like they're doing with the South China Sea.

Need a moon/Antarctic treaty for Mars and other bodies if we don't have one already. Or something like:

"Every human on Mars up to number 1,000,000 gets a free acre, and the government on their passport also gets an adjacent acre. Acres can be inherited and/or sold.

Corporations get nothing, they can only buy from existing plots.

However the first human for a government gets to place their marker, and that is also where their government marker goes, and all following markers must be adjacent to an existing marker from their nationality.

After 1,000,000, an independent Mars government will be formed with equal participation from every existing nation who can make decisions on the rest of the planet and will immediately gain an equal million acres (public services) that cannot be sold. The rest of the land has no ownership until population X"


I prefer unbridled grabassery culminating in space battle. Mmmmmm, space battle.
