Phoenix Landed!

Well, congratulations are in order thus far for NASA, JPL and the University of Arizona for the almost utterly perfect landing of Phoenix on Mars this morning Australian time. The entry, descent and landing was amazing to observe (obviously not video, but reports of the progress) and it appears that Phoenix is a whole 1/4 degree of perfectly horizontal - you couldn't ask for more after a 679 million kilometer journey!

I'm looking forward to the Post-Landing broadcast in just on an hour where we may even have the first images that have been received from the Lander.

Looking good!
