Mars Landing 5:30Central

Thanks to laurel for the reminder.

Right now (5pm) the NASA channel (ch 77 on Comcast Cable) is preparing to cover the Pheonix Mars Lander landing at 5:30pm. That's 5:30pm Central. I don't know what time it is on Mars.

It's called "Pheonix" because the project rose from the metaphorical ashes of two other programs cancelled after the failed Mars landings earlier. We shall see what the Martian Resistance Movement has in store for the Terran craft this time.
