Just open the following link with Windows Media Player 10 or 11:

I'm watching it in fullscreen...

EDIT:
VLC Media Player seems to work too...

Try double-clicking on the image, it works when the main button doesn't answer.

What is the reason that Phoenix will use Pulse thrusters to land on Mars instead of chemical thrusters which were used others spacecrafts landing on Moon?

I know that the 2 Vikings used the same Pulse Thrusters Technology. What are the advantages of using that technology?

One important thing is that the spacecraft will have about 600 kg on Earth or about 198 kgs on Mars.

I suspect that the pulsed thrusters has an advantage to damage less on the surface than a chemical engine.

It's easier cheaper to control the amount of thrust this way than to develop throttleable thrusters.

It was down several hours ago so I suspect it's been down since then.
