Phoenix Spacecraft mockup
There was an open house on Saturday at the Phoenix Building where most of those working on the Phoenix Lander that will head to Mars later this year can be found. This is a full scale mockup of the lander on display there. I often like to say that I am not a rocket scientist, but some of my friends are. I know quite a few of those who are working on this spacecraft and hopefully you'll see the results of their hard work next year when it lands on Mars. This image was taken with the kit lens on my 20D at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/25 seconds at f/3.5, ISO 800.
