New Mars Pheonix to Land Today at North Pole


Watch it stream live today, directions here

The last attempt to land on Mars in 1999 went terribly, in fact, a good majority of missions have gone wrong due to difficulty landing on the damn thing (and thus the name "seven minutes of terror").

The Pheonix will be searching the North Pole for traces of organic compounds, the building blocks of life, in ice. More information here.

And the official site for the project is here.
