Phoenix out… probably for the Last Time

November 11, 2008

Been following this baby for 5 months. An excerpt from yesterday’s mission news:

“NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander has ceased communications after operating for more than five months.”

– Via

Or a more direct version from this website:

The end seems to have finally come for NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander mission at the planet’s north pole, scientists said Monday.”

– Via

Its a bittersweet ending for the US$475 million project but for the starry-eyed ones like me, the results are well worth it.

I have no doubt that some day, the Phoenix will rise again.

The dream lives on!
