Phoenix Mars Mission: Onto the Ice
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the first successful landing on the Mars polar region and the ongoing search for signs of life on Earth's neighboring planets. This programme documents the 680 million kilometers journey through space exclusively through the eyes of principal investigator Peter H. Smith and the Phoenix Lander Team. We follow the international team of talented and dedicated scientists, engineers and researchers as they work to land on Mars ? from practice landings with simulated catastrophic errors through the heart-pounding, seven-minute descent onto the Red Planet.
