"Baby Bear" is the name of the sample taken from "Goldilocks." This sample was delivered to the Thermal and Evolved- Gas Analyzer (TEGA) instrument for analysis.

The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.
