Uncle Tractor: List doesn't have my local space agency, so I'll just go sulk over there.

Dude.. the Norwegian space agency is infamous in its contributions to mankind and world knowledge of the Cosmos..

it wasn't put on the list because its contributions are so well known!

why do have such a low opinion of your own nationals contributions?

J. Frank Parnell: davidphogan: I just don't know why Canada being in space is news at all. They were the third country to launch a satellite.

Been pretty heavily involved in space technology since the beginning. In fact, the 'legs' of the lunar lander were made in Canada, so i like mentioning how the first human-made thing to touch the moon was Canadian made.

/if humans made the trip at all

Is the motto of Canada "Just the tip"?
