Unless you’re half the world away, or without a decent source for news this past weekend, Mars Lander "Phoenix" has successfully completed its journey to the red planet and survived its landing in the arctic region of the planet.

The great thing about all this is that unlike previous missions, NASA broadcast the landing on NASA TV.  "According to Michael Learmonth of Silicon Valley Insider, starting at 6 PM EST today, people can head to NASA’s website, or Second Life, to watch as NASA attempts to put the Phoenix Mars Lander down on solid ground. [Mashable]"

Apparently  I personally missed the broadcast aand te whole news the they’d land another robot on Mars.   So the landing was successful and Martian pictures are getting streamed back to Earth.

NASA TV is not broadcasting every little thing.  They will however be broadcasting on scheduled times according to their site.
