Phoenix, the latest spacecraft on Mars, communicates with Earth through two Nasa orbiters circling the planet.
One of them, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, turned its radio off, possibly because of a cosmic ray, said Fuk Li, manager of the Mars exploration programme for Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
