“We are proud to have participated.”

Vista Metals Corp would like to congratulate JPL and NASA on a successful landing of the Mars rover. Specialty aluminum products were provided by Vista, the world’s largest independent producer of specialty aluminum products, for the Curiosity.

Vista salutes the ingenuity and hard work of the engineers and everyone involved in this historical event. It is clear that the USA is still the world leader in space exploration and this voyage will greatly help expand man’s knowledge of Mars and the universe beyond.
