Phoenix on Mars

By now you will have seen or heard about the Mars lander, Phoenix.

Phoenix has been sent to Mars’ arctic region to conduct a 3 month long investigation and, while there is plenty of commentary and news in the usual places, one of the very best sources is the mission’s main site.

Recent highlights include a remarkable photograph of Phoenix’s descent through the Martian atmosphere, with parachute deployed, taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

I’m sure there’ll be plenty more news adn developments in the coming months.
