Historic pictures sent from Mars
26-May-2008 (7 comments)

A Nasa spacecraft has sent back historic first pictures of an unexplored region of Mars. The Mars Phoenix lander touched down in the far north of the Red Planet, after a 680 million-km (423 million-mile) journey from Earth. The probe is equipped with a robotic arm to dig for water-ice thought to be buried beneath the surface.

Yes, but you forget that it's with the fruit of the latter that they can afford the former ! So, no I'm not surprised.

Space exploration should expand. Are you not curious about the rest of this vast limitless universe? There's life out there, beyond earth. It would be so wonderful to connect.


This is the side of America I love!

America is great because of pioneering in science and technology not because of its bullying power and invading others in the world.

The cost of building and sending this machine to Mars is less that 0.5 Billion dollars. The cost of sending troops to Iraq and destroying the nation is 12 Billion a month! That's the dark side of America. Isn't it a shame?

The more I read about the news of space programs, the less I believe the moon landing could have occured in the 60's ! we didn't have internet, satellites, cell phones, VCR's or even color TV back then...

it's a big deal to land a robot even now.
