Phoenix Rises Toward Mars


Explanation:
Can Mars sustain life?

To help answer this question, last week
NASA launched
the Phoenix mission
to Mars.

In May 2008,
Phoenix
is expected to land in an unexplored
north polar region of Mars that is
rich in water-ice.

Although
Phoenix cannot move,
it can deploy its
cameras,
robotic arm, and a small
chemistry laboratory
to inspect, dig, and chemically analyze its
landing area.

One hope is that Phoenix will be able to discern telling clues to the history of
ice and water on
Mars.

Phoenix is also
poised to explore
the boundary between ice and soil in hopes of finding clues of a
habitable zone
there that could support
microbial life.

Phoenix has a
planned lifetime
of three months on the
Martian surface.
