Fair use rationale for Image:Marsexpressimage.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Marsexpressimage.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Merger with Exploration of Mars[edit]

I agree with the proposed merger with Exploration of Mars, as landings are part of Mars exploration. BatteryIncluded (talk) 04:28, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

I oppose merging it with Exploration of Mars. The article Exploration of Mars is long enough as it is. YouthoNation (talk) 20:18, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Article Requires Major Editing Or Deletion[edit]

There is no mention of the US Mariner probes (Mariner 4 was the first successful flyby in 1964, Mariners 6 & 7 flew by in 1969, Mariner 9 was the first successful orbiter), despite extensive coverage of other non-landing spacecraft (Phobos, MGS, Odyssey, Nozomi, etc.), which itself is inconsistent with the article's title. Article seems heavily biased towards Soviet/Russian spacecraft.

Recommend a complete re-edit to focus solely on landers, or delete this article entirely and cross-reference to other better-researched and maintained articles. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.173.28.28 (talk) 04:34, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
