The Mars lander, Phoenix will be touching down near the North Pole of the red planet on May 25th. It is an exciting mission, which is setting out to explore the notion of life on Mars as well as looking into the planet’s water history.


There’s no point in me regurgitating a load of facts here; The Planetary Society has a great lowdown on the Phoenix lander and recent news regarding the mission.

I just wanted to mention that there is a great Twitter feed for the Phoenix mission which will keep you up to date if you’re that way inclined.
