Darcy White, Alison Oswald-Keene, Justin Karkow and I (Diana Laufenberg) were just treated to an amazing event at Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena, CA. About two hours ago we were on site watching as the information reported in on the Phoenix Mars Lander landing. Just a few minutes ago, mission control and the scientists at the University of Arizona received the first images from the lander. The mission, so far, has exceeded expectations and spirits are very high. We are all amazed to have been able to be here, in real time, for the event. This was quite a treat. More to come later… stay tuned! THANKS to Justin Karkow and Discovery for the fabulous opportunity!
