    The Phoenix Just Landed Successfully on Mars !!!

    Just happened. I don't have a reference, but the "7 Minutes of Terror" passed and the landing was successful. Wonderful.

    Phoenix lander safely touches down on Mars

    Touchdown! NASA's Phoenix lander has survived its harrowing descent to Mars and apparently stands poised to conduct what scientists hope will be a revealing investigation of the Red Planet's enigmatic northern plains.
    The news reached Earth at 1653 PDT on Sunday (0053 GMT on Monday), courtesy of the Mars Odyssey orbiter, which relayed a strong signal from Phoenix as it gently bumped to a safe landing.
    During the final minutes of the descent, team members and spectators alike were riveted by the running commentary provided by deputy systems engineer Richard Kornfeld in the mission support area at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, California, US.
