Prepping the Phoenix Lander
The Phoenix Mission, slated for launch in August 2007, is the first project in NASA's program of Mars Scout missions. The Phoenix Lander is currently housed in a 100,000-class clean room at Lockheed Martin Space Systems' facilities near Denver, Colo. The Phoenix team continues to make specific modifications and prepare for assembly, test and launch operations to get underway in spring 2006.
