I believe Peter Smith was giving peanuts to the people in the control room if you were watching on Nasa TV during EDL.Its great to be on Mars again!

I've tried to switch sleeping hours and I 1/2 succeed blink.gif
I've got to leave home in another 2h20 minutes to catch a plane and I'm sure the pictures will be down by then smile.gif
They HAVE too. Mind Phoenix, we know where you are (I mean, at least Tim53 must know it wink.gif )

Based on how things have gone so far, I'd guess that's exactly dead center of the landing elipse. But we'll find out soon enough smile.gif

I was able to post a bit of what the experience at Kuiper Space Sciences was at my blog at http://tuvas21.blogspot.com , it was pretty boring really, but, well, yah... I was able to get more information from there then I was from web sources, although it was basically a play of NASA TV.

BTW, I do know at least one of the Tucson channels had live coverage, I just don't know which one...

The New York Times posted an article about the successful landing. I do not know if it has already been posted here.

Just wanna confirm - it is 6:43pm PDT that the first images are expected.

The way I understand it is that at that time the images will be coming into JPL and
any chance for us to see them will be on NASA TV shots of the screens at JPL.

They will be on full display at the press briefing (formerly scheduled for 9pm pacific time but
now the NASA TV site says: ""9:30 p.m. - Mars Phoenix Lander Briefing - First Downlink of Data - JPL")

What is the exact peanut deployment sequence? I have my jar of peanuts, unopened. Am I supposed to wait until EDL, until we hear it succeed?


I wish they'd shut up about the peanuts. We ate peanuts at the Mars Polar Lander
arrival - they didnt work.

I'm really glad this looks like it went well.

I think that the MPL disaster was due to a conversion mixup -- you were supposed to eat CIRCUS peanuts!

This is why silly superstitions have no place in science and technology -- now I'm going to have to steer clear of candy bars for a while! :-)

How about using Imperial units of measure?
