Saw this paragraph :

And the developers, who used the C programming language to build their own software for a Linux operating system, are expected to be dealing with such extreme programming for about three months. The Mars Lander, which is on a one-way trip, is slated to gather and analyze samples throughout the summer months. After that, the planet's temperature will drop well below the current safe range of minus 170 degrees Fahrenheit to 32 degrees Fahrenheit, causing the Lander to freeze up and stop working.

It's an incredible achievement, with (perhaps) a few revelations to come. Is the white element ice or a form of salt? If so, what form of 'salt'? There's even more questions to be answered.
Anyone interested ina 3-D image, go here to 'Spaceweather'. http://www.spaceweather.com/ and view Patrick Vantuyne from Belgium anaglyph picture, created by combining right and left eye images from Phoenix's stereo camera.
