Phoenix on Mars!

Wonderful news! The Phoenix spacecraft has safely touched down on Mars. Phoenix was launched in August 2007 and has finally arrived at its destination, at 6:53 PM Houston time. The main purpose of the mission is to search under the surface for water ice to determine if conditions may have supported life.

Congratulations and continued good luck to the Phoenix team!

Dr. Chiao, do you have an email address where I could contact you? I made a powerpoint in my astronomy class and I used you in many of my slides and would like to share it with you. Let me know. You can email me at
