Today is quite possibly the biggest day in the history of The University of Arizona, which may or may not be may place of work :-). The Phoenix Mars Mission has successfully landed on Mars!!! Congrats to all my colleagues over in the space-sciences, physics, engineering and optics departments on a job well done. Now the real fun can begin!!
Looks like there is a party in the street outside my office window… perhaps now would be a good time to stop writing that grant.
Update: Now with images of Mars. It looks like Phoenix will be analyzing ice soon.
