How long was its recent mission extension? By that moment, the snow has started to appear above of coldest places.

Maybe it is just because I haven't tried to create such a logo, but I suspect I never would have designed one as artful as that. Nice work, Asto0. Not only is the logo clever, but the entire poster captures the theme. smile.gif Outstanding!

It's not entirely obvious to me why the sol 65 thread was closed, but I'll assume it is time to move discussions to the extended mission thread. The following quote is from the previous thread. If I've misplaced this comment, hopefully the mods will move it.

Found another story on the perchlorates. Most of it old news but I at least had not seen this before ...

That was a pretty interesting story, and a nice summary of the work done so far. I can't help but wonder if perhaps this ClO4- story has really surprised the Phoenix team at this late date in the mission. Has the robotic arm delivered enough samples from enough locations to the various instruments to define the extent of the perchlorate ions, and if indeed there are any perchlorate concentration gradients?

It sounds like a tricky wicket to me, so lately in the game.

There is a trio of Sol 90 "low sun" images - taken at 00.50, 00.51 and 00.56 - that make a nice animation...

By the way, new poem - "First Frost" - now up on my poetry blog, if anyone wants a look... smile.gif

The lowest sun elevation is now about 0.7 degrees, but it already fully set behind the slight rise to the north for about half an hour. However today there's already a very nice picture of the half-sun:

Mars24 says that Sol 98 is the first day with an actual sun-set - so we get a funky week of partial sunsets smile.gif

Any official information about how long Phoenix will stay power positive and be able to work?
