Phoenix Lands!

I've been following the Mars Phoenix probe landing on the Science Channel.

1) Good landing. When the dust settles, the NASA team will be able to tell more about it.

2) The tough part starts now. The solar panels have to open, as the probe only has very limited battery power. The digging equipment has to work. But, first, it all depends on the solar panels and the camera.

3) For the next 90 days, the mission will be progressing.

This information is coming via The Discovery Channel.
