Update on Phoenix Mars Lander Scheduled for Friday

13.06.2008
NASA and The University of Arizona will hold a televised news briefing on Friday, June 13, at noon PDT (3 p.m. EDT), to present the latest news from NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander mission, which touched down on the Red Planet on May 25.

The briefing will take place at the Phoenix Mission Science Operations Center at the UA, will be carried live on NASA TV's Media and Public Channels and will also be Web cast.

Briefing participants will include:

- Peter Smith; Phoenix Principal Investigator; UA
- Michael Hecht; Lead Scientist for Phoenix Microscopy, Electrochemistry and Conductivity Analyzer; Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena
- Mark Lemmon; Lead Scientist, for Phoenix Surface Stereo Imager; Texas A&M University, College Station

- Nilton Renno; Phoenix Science Team Member, Atmosphere; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

To participate in the question-and-answer session by phone, reporters must contact the UA (520-626-1974) or JPL Media Relations (818-354-5011) by 11:30 a.m. PDT (2:30 p.m. EDT) on June 13 for the call-in number.

In the continental United States, NASA Television's Public and Media channels are carried by MPEG-2 digital C-band signal on AMC-6, at 72 degrees west longitude, Transponder 17C, 4040 MHz, vertical polarization. They're available in Alaska and Hawaii on an MPEG-2 digital C-band signal accessed via satellite AMC-7, transponder 18C, 137 degrees west longitude, 4060 MHz, vertical polarization. A Digital Video Broadcast compliant Integrated Receiver Decoder is required for reception. To view the Web cast, go to www.nasa.gov/ntv and click on Media Channel.

Im Focus: ScanCut project completed: laser cutting enables more intricate plug connector designs

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.

Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...

Im Focus: New Strategy Against Osteoporosis

An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.

Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...

Im Focus: AI & single-cell genomics

New software predicts cell fate

Traditional single-cell sequencing methods help to reveal insights about cellular differences and functions - but they do this with static snapshots only...

Im Focus: TU Graz Researchers synthesize nanoparticles tailored for special applications

“Core-shell” clusters pave the way for new efficient nanomaterials that make catalysts, magnetic and laser sensors or measuring devices for detecting electromagnetic radiation more efficient.

Whether in innovative high-tech materials, more powerful computer chips, pharmaceuticals or in the field of renewable energies, nanoparticles – smallest...

Im Focus: Tailored light inspired by nature

An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.

Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
