Mars Phoenix Lander

26 05 2008

This image shows a polygonal pattern in the ground near NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander, similar in appearance to icy ground in the arctic regions of Earth.

Phoenix touched down on the Red Planet at 4:53 p.m. Pacific Time (7:53 p.m. Eastern Time), May 25, 2008, in an arctic region called Vastitas Borealis, at 68 degrees north latitude, 234 degrees east longitude.

Visit the websites of NASA and the University of Atizona‘s Phoenix website to keep up with all the latest photos and videos. The university site also offers screen savers and a mars weather widget for Macs.
