mistake? I see several:
- First off, there were a total of 36 moon mission failures. The first 4 NASA missions failed. After Pioneer IV, the subsequent 7 NASA missions failed.
- Secondly, the graphic seems to intimate that ALL of the Mars missions were successful. The first 5 missions to Mars failed; the second NASA mission, Mariner IV was successful. 16 missions to Mars failed in total. And I don't think there's been 40 missions to Mars yet.
