We’re on Mars too

Mars Phoenix Lander

Mars, 2008. This more-or-less true color image shows the special DVD containing about 250,000 names (including cbell’s) and other information velcroed onto the Mars Phoenix Lander. Image: NASA (obviously).

The Phoenix Lander like the Spirit and Opportunity Rover missions before have reignited my long-standing interest in planetary exploration that dates back to afternoons in the late 70s and early 80s sitting in absolute awe watching the “live” images coming back from the Voyager 1 & 2 missions.
