Mars Touchdown [krakatoa]

The first rocket-assisted landing on Mars since 1976.

"A signal has been detected from Phoenix indicating that the lander is on the surface of Mars."

It's a shame we as a society, hell, as a world, have lost so much interest in what is truly our only salvation as a species. We should have colonies established on the moon by now.

And most distressing of all: My garage still has no flying car parked in it.

Update. Just in case any of you morons are too drunk to be able to type www.nasa.gov.

UPDATE II: Phoenix images.

The first two are part a conceptual series by Phoenix, exploring the existential nature of a digital machine in an analog universe.

Also, Phoenix has discovered life on Mars, and it is aggressive. I think most of us at AoS will be just fine with our new overlords though.
