Phoenix Strikes Something White!!

The Phoenix space rover has struck something white..... Is it ice?? Is it salt?? Whatever it is, it shows that substances do exist below the topsoil of Mars.... What exactly is it?? Only time will tell...

And you know where to come for all your updates......

Pictures of the "White Substance"

The substance could not be studied today as there was a small glitch in the flash memory of the probe....

In NASA's words: "NASA's Phoenix Mars Mission generated an unusually high volume of spacecraft housekeeping data on Tuesday causing the loss of some non-critical science data.Phoenix engineers are analyzing why this anomaly occurred. The science team is planning spacecraft activities for Thursday that will not rely on Phoenix storing science data overnight but will make use of multiple communication relays to gain extra data quantity"

Hopefully, all problems will be sorted out soon!!
