More Phoenix Stuff

I was checking the news this morning and I came across some more stuff on the Pheonix Lander:


Update 5/30/08: Oh noes! Apparently the Pheonix Lander is already having issues with its instrumentation! According to those involved in trying to fix the problem, the instrumentation that is having short-circuit problems is not mission critical, but still, for having had the lander made it so far and so successfully, it still is sad to see that even though the mission went without much problem, this could mean the loss of some potentially useful scientific information.
