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: Explosion on Jupiter-sized star 10 times more powerful than ever seen on our sun

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter

  • Coolest and smallest star to produce a superflare found
  • Star is a tenth of the radius of our Sun
  • Researchers led by University of Warwick could only see...

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...

Im Focus: A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.

Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...

Im Focus: Researchers 3D print metamaterials with novel optical properties

Engineers create novel optical devices, including a moth eye-inspired omnidirectional microwave antenna

A team of engineers at Tufts University has developed a series of 3D printed metamaterials with unique microwave or optical properties that go beyond what is...
