The Phoenix Lander is about to land (starting 4PM PST) on Mars. On board is a Canadian built weather-station to measure the weather on Mars!

Check it out Live here.. they should post a replay of it later here as well if you miss it.

UPDATE: Phoenix has landed successfully… sitting perfectly on the surface of Mars near the “Arctic Circle”. Where there is, hopefully, water and if we’re really lucky, life, just buried in the dirt. It was fun to watch the mission control!
