PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - NASA says there's no word from the
Phoenix lander that is presumed to be frozen near the Martian north
pole.
The space agency said Thursday the Mars Odyssey spacecraft
passed over the Phoenix landing site 30 times during the last three
days and did not hear anything.
Scientists have said it is highly unlikely that Phoenix survived
the Martian winter. It landed on Mars in May 2008 and operated for
five months.
NASA will listen for Phoenix again next month.
