I was on pins and needles for this today since the last landing attempt failed and from the other things I’ve read, NASA has been batting .500 since the Viking missions when it comes to Mars.
Somara and I caught the half hour of tension through the NASA station which my “defunct” Dish receiver still picks up for free.
According to the people on NASA TV, the Phoenix nailed the landing with it only being a quarter degree off; meaning it’s on a flat surface. Pretty amazing work, controlling a probe millions of miles away with a 15-minute delay. It was deploying its solar array by the time we left for dinner and there should be pictures tomorrow night!
