Phoenix Self Portrait
Date: 10 Jun 2008

This image shows NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander's solar panel and the lander's robotic arm with a sample in the scoop. The image was taken by the lander's Surface Stereo Imager looking west during Phoenix's Sol 16 (10 June 2008), or the 16th Martian day after landing. The image was taken just before the sample was delivered to the Optical Microscope.


The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.
