Phoenix lander settles safely onto Mars surface!

Phoenix Mars Lander on the surface of Mars, artist's conception, from NASA/JPL

The Phoenix Mars Lander has just settled successfully, softly on the surface of of the Red Planet! Not a bouncing, rolling landing like previous probes, but standing on its own legs, like the big guys. Wow.

Congratulations to NASA and the JPL on this magnificent achievement!!!

Update: The first pictures sent back from Phoenix are now posted on the JPL web site.

    Great idea! I can’t afford the mountain view here. I wonder what the current interest rates are there …

... and that's my two cents
