Phoenix Mosaic: 9 Jun 2008 Cover for Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine

Pay Dirt: Phoenix Hits its Icy Target

For this thrilling and superb science mission to the Martian arctic, we (mars loon and dilo) are pleased and humbled to present a simple false color mosaic we constructed of a Phoenix footpad and the "snow queen" feature uncovered during landing.

The mosaic is featured as part of the Phoenix cover package for the new 9 June 2008 issue of AWST magazine
Find the cover and article segment at the AWST website here:

Phoenix Imagery Reveals North Polar Plain
By Craig Covault
The Phoenix lander sits near the North Pole of Mars directly on top of exposed water ice that it was prepared to dig for weeks to find. The mission goal is to unravel the mysteries of what may be preserved inside the ice and surrounding soil. ....

Our tribute to honor the fantastic efforts of the brilliant Phoenix Team !

Congratulations on making both AWST and APOD!!

I am making a thread with all the images UMSF'ers have gotten into major printed publications and APOD: http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.php?showtopic=5235

- Could you guys maybe help me out, so we get a comprehensive list of images in the thread? Maybe there are some Cassini images by UMSF'ers as well, that I don't know about?

Thanks!
