The Chances of Anything Coming from Mars…

The Phoenix Mars Lander well..landed…on Sunday evening on..well..Mars.  Just in case you couldn’t guess, it’s called Phoenix.

Did you know that the photograph taken from the orbiter space craft that dropped the lander off is the very first photograph taken from a spacecraft of another spacecraft landing on Mars?

Martian Tripod...In Woking.I’m going to keep any eye on the latest developments on Mars.  You know, just in case the Martians come out to say hello.

OK, it’s unlikely but the Phoenix Lander has see fresh cracks in the ground which might be a sign of ice movement.  That might be a sign that there is subterranean water, which may be a sign that there could be life.

Wouldn’t that be cool?
