It’s a big day today for us space cadets. I’m one of those guys that has downloaded pretty much every program known to man for the past ten years that help me understand the area beyond the mesosphere.
Also known as space.
Today at about 5pm PST, the Phoenix will land on Mars.
If I had enough money, I’d blow it all on being able to go up in the space shuttle. There were no human takers on today’s NASA mission to Mars. They asked me. I would have said yes but they couldn’t guarantee to be able to supply enough Tang to last the entire mission.
So, if you are hanging at home today like your’s truly, you will be able to watch the landing on CNN (web or television).
I also encourage you to check out the NASA website. It’s a very cool website with lots of interactive stuff to do, videos, podcasts, etc. You can watch the landing event on their website as well. If you have satellite tv, the NASA channel will be hosting the landing as well.
The cool folks at Gizmodo have a good post with more information on the landing. Check it out if you have time.
