SciEye welcomes Phoenix lander to Mars!

Phoenix arriving!

Explorer isle, SPNN(SPindriftNewsNet), SciLands, Second Life – The rl [real life] earthlings got to watch Phoenix in parachuted descent after entry and from its camera after landing; we NASA JPL, Ames, & CoLab worker avatars, plus the independents of the ISM [International Space Museum] got a better view as we watched Phoenix arrive and land on Martian terrain at Explorer Island.

 A Phoenix explaining the Phoenix landing photo to me …  Since this is a still image, I have to add that Helios Eusebio’s burning feathers shimmer and glow as they renew.  :)


Jet’s narration is interrupted by one of the ever-present dust devils!

Here’s Ron Miller’s portrayal of dust devils and dust storm from the Spindrift Space Gallery:

 In the interest of avoiding panic, SPNN wishes to clearly state that this following image from the surface of Mars has *not* been identified as a Martian tripod fighting machine!

    We already had a Lander called Phoenix during one of the Lunar missions. Hopefully, by the time we are ready to send a man there, we will be a bit more original and significant – like the Angel of the Garden, in case we plan on making the planet habitable. Cathetel, is the Angel of the Garden.
