Phoenix Has Landed!
May 25, 2008

Pasadena -- A NASA spacecraft landed in the Martian arctic today to begin three months of examining a site chosen for the likelihood of having frozen water within reach of the lander's robotic arm.

Radio signals received at 4:53 p.m. Pacific Time confirmed that the Phoenix Mars Lander had survived its difficult final descent and touchdown 15 minutes earlier. In the intervening time, those signals crossed the distance from Mars to Earth at the speed of light.

Mission team members at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.: Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver; and the University of Arizona, Tucson, cheered confirmation of the landing and eagerly awaited further information from Phoenix later tonight.

the Mars Phoenix Probe has now successfully made touchdown. What will the Phoenix Probe reveal? The probe is outfitted with sensors and instruments calibrated to detect the presence of water ice. Other sources suggest that Phoenix is searching for life. What will Phoenix reveal?

I was just watching this on the NASA channel. I Have to say, I'm really excited to see what comes out of this. I just hope its not hidden, or any finds "edited".
Good to see a successful landing though. What was it? a 50/50 chance this could have gone poorly. Finally. Now, lets get to the disclosin'!!!

Too bad its going to take a while before the public gets to see the first images.......I guess they have to make sure theres nothing too important for us to see first.

Starred & Flagged!


This is something I think we'll all be keeping a close eye on! I keep getting the sneaking feeling that we have been being prepped over the past few years for at least a MICROBIAL life disclosure...I've seen enough odd stuff in mars pics to make me scratch my head for years. lol

The probe to mars was a great success, but why does the government hide stuff from us. Everybody knows that the government somewhere has recovered aliens.

If the lander detects organic compounds within the water ice then it brings humanity that much closer to proving that we are not alone. Even better, detect the presence of microbs. Then there is no doubt-LIFE IS EVERWHERE!!!
