  • spaceflightnow.com has rapid updates & photos. The camera is a bit more nearsighted than the rover cameras. Not as much ice on the ground as we were told.
  • Yeah, it was great! Congratulations from Australia, guys. Now just waiting for the post-landing systems poll.
  • That was cool ! I hope others tuned in to the live broadcast.

    Phoenix has landed !
