For a Phoenix that won't rise from the ashes

Here's to a safe landing for the Phoenix Mars Lander. I'll have my fingers crossed tonight.

I'm so ready to learn what Phoenix can tell us. Will Mars show signs of habitability? I really hope so!

UPDATE: First possible landing confirmation could come at 16:53 pacific time (02:53 Greek time).

UPDATE #2: Phoenix had a successful landing! Looks like Team Earth is finally going to tie the score!

I think that the possibility of any life beyond microscopic is very slim, even meters beneath the soil. Though, if we look at our own extremophiles here on Earth, that does raise the stakes a bit.

I am banking for our possibilites existing on Jupiter's moon, Europa

Yay! Thanks for the update, Mel. (I tend to just get the food news. :-)
