The new mars probe - Phoenix, have landed today on the surface! You can see pictures here. This is a very exciting mission. Phoenix is equipped with a state of art scientific hardware and a drill that will help in getting information about presence of water in the Mars' polar crust. I would like to recommend a very interesting podcast about Phoenix mission that was recorded few months ago on the Futures in Biotech. This is very exciting time for people interested in Mars and exploration of Space. I cannot wait for the first results!
