More Mars Lander Photos Released

NASA Releases Two More Photos From 'Phoenix' Landing:


Snapped By An Orbiting Satellite As Phoenix Descended:


Amazing. NASA was able to launch a small vehicle from Earth to Mars, some 170 million miles away. They predicted the area where it would land, pulled off a spectacular landing and 15 minutes later images from Mars were transmitted back to Earth. The landing was captured by a different satellite launched some time ago that is now orbiting the planet. Is anyone else blow away by this?
