Phoenix Mars Lander Pictures

After the Phoenix Mars Lander safely landed, it snapped a few pictures of the red planet’s surface and sent them to NASA. Click here for first picture in gallery.

NASA received the first signals at 7:53:44PM Eastern Time, which made engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California; Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver; and the University of Arizona, Tucson, to jump on their seats overjoyed.
