Arizona scores two Popular Science awards

The University of Arizona scored two wins fromPopular Science magazine for "The Best of What's New '08."

Popular Science gave the Grand Award in Aviation & Space to the UA's Phoenix Mars Lander [right, credit Popular Science], which ceased operations last week as the craft's power ran down in the Martian winter.

The Large Binocular Telescope was also cited in the Aviation & Space category. The magazine noted the LBT has 10 times the light gathering power of the Hubble space telescope.
