NASA to find out if Phoenix Lander still working


NASA is to find out whether its Mars exploration spacecraft, the Phoenix Lander, is still functioning or not, according to news reports on Wednesday.

The Phoenix Lander was landed on Mars on May 2008 in glancing for possible lives. After almost half a year of searching, the Spacecraft has presumably concluded its own life.

To continue its researching, NASA has now begun to make new efforts to know whether the Phoenix Lander is still in function.

"We have no hope that Phoenix has survived...but we certainly want to have a look," said Chad Edwards, chief telecommunications engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

NASA started Mars Exploration from the starting of 1964 and has 46 years of exploring experience until this year.
