The Mars Robot That Refuses To Give Up

NASA Mars Phoenix Mission Status Report 30 October 2008

"Phoenix communicated with NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter Thursday. The communication reinforced a diagnosis that the spacecraft is in a precautionary mode triggered by low energy. Mission engineers are assessing the lander's condition and steps necessary for returning to science operations."

MarsPhoenix Twitter: "Take care of that beautiful blue marble out there in space, our home planet. Ill be keeping an eye from here. Space exploration FTW!"

Veronica McGregor Twitter, JPL PAO: "Ah, just when you think it's all over, the 'sick child' phones home. Nice to know @marsphoenix is still trying, exceeding expectations."
