Re: Artefact on Mars?

Hi! Anyone paid attention to the white 'object' on one of the first photographs sent back by Phoenix? Take a look at it.
You can see it approx. in the middle, near the horizon.

Re: Artefact on Mars?

Hi Major Tom (I love that song), welcome to New Mars.

Speculation has it that the object is the heatshield that separated from the lander during EDL.
