Mars Lander

Here's one of the first pictures back from the Phoenix Mars Lander. A shot of the Martian arctic plains.

On Mars!

Another planet!

Come's a picture sent from another freakin' planet!!!

When did landing a spacecraft on another world become so.....everyday? I remember going to the gymnasium of my elementary school to watch one of the early space shots on a black and white TV. We gathered around and the principal told us that history was being made.

Now it's a short clip on the evening news and maybe your kids science teacher will mention it tomorrow.

Check it out and follow the mission at the NASA site.
