"NOVA" to air UA Phoenix Mars Lander program

Landmark moments from the UA's Phoenix Mars Lander mission will be featured on PBS' "NOVA" science program Tuesday night. "Is There Life on Mars?" will air at 9 pm Tucson on Tues, Dec. 30. The film crew reportedly was given 'fly on the wall' status throughout the 5-month long mission to capture the crises, successes, and scientific decision-making as they occurred.

On related note, we dropped relatives off at the Tucson Airport today and there was a full-size mock-up of the Lander in the baggage claim area [right], with a wall of pictures and posters of the mission.
