So, Phoenix has now become the 6th US lander to land safely on Mars. Still to be determined is if it is in full working condition. The first picture is expected back in an hour and a half. MRO has attempted with it's HiRISE camera to take a picture, so only time will tell if that has come through. If it was successful, it will be known to the crew in about 7 hours. The deployment stage is being tested, solar planet signals are being received. I'll probably be heading off after this post, so for now, signing off.
