The Mars Lander

As the latest news from NASA released, Mars Phoenix Lander has 1.46 million miles still to travel to finally land on Mars. The total flight is 422 million miles. If everything goes well Phoenix will land on Mars tomorrow, May 25.

From the previous attempts only five successful landing out of eleven missions could be made which is less tan 50% of success. The Probe is targeted to land on the Martian arctic, near the northern polar ice cap (Mars’s equivalent to Northern Alaska).

The ice is most probably in the form of permafrost but Phoenix’s robotic arm will dig through the ice and the soil to look for evidence if there’s life on this red planet of if life existed ever.

As the NASA countdown shows, Phoenix is 1 day 4 hours and 45 minutes away from Mars.

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Freddy and I’ve wasted nearly a month of my life on this place 😉 I found it after being recommended by a few friends who have been hanging out here for quite some time.

    I am a writer, graphics artist, photographer and just about anything else that comes up around the office. Aside from the above interests i’m really into scifi as I know that is so much more out there to be discovered, and a feeling that the universe is just teaming with life.

    Well, I hope that I get to know more people here, share some experience and start learning. Have a greay day!
