Phoenix landing on Mars – Live on NASA TV

Phoenix Landing (artist rendition)Don’t miss the Phoenix landing today (May 25) at 3pm Arizona time (6pm EDT). NASA is broadcasting it live on their NASA TV site, and I’m sure the cable news channels will be covering it. The Phoenix is attempting to land in the northern part of Mars (relative to Earth, think northern Canada). It is landing on the largest collection of ice outside of the Martian poles, an area that scientists have dubbed “Green Valley.”

The purpose of the mission is to search for evidence of microbial life, something that the rovers in the more arid regions of Mars haven’t found.
