NASA PHOENIX LANDS ON MARS
In this artist conception, the Phoenix Mars Lander, which launched in August 2007 and the first project in NASA's Mars Scout missions, landed on Mars on May 25, 2008. The mission's plan is to land in icy soils near the north polar permanent ice cap of Mars and explore the history of the water in these soils and any associated rocks, while monitoring polar climate.The spacecraft and its instruments are designed to analyze samples collected from up to a half-meter (20 inches) deep using its robotic arm. The arm extends forward in this artist's concept of the lander on Mars. (UPI Photo/NASA)
