NASA stops calling Phoenix Mars Lander

The last communication with the Phoenix Mars Lander was on November 2, but NASA keep hailing the lander from Mars orbiters and listening for a response. But after nearly a month of daily checks, NASA gave up today and we know that the cold and dark finally took its toll.
