Farewell, Phoenix

The Mars Phoenix Mission is over, the polar explorer fallen silent for the past week after fading light, dropping temperatures and unfortunate dust storms. I was hoping it was going to last long enough to watch the Martian ice caps encroach from ground level, but it wasn’t meant to be. Fortunately, the Mars Rovers keep on keeping on. Yay Spirit! Yay Opportunity!
