Phoenix Mars Mission Exhibit Opens at Arizona Museum

Up from the Ashes: Phoenix Goes to Mars, a new exhibit about NASA's Phoenix Mars Mission, is scheduled to open at the Arizona Capitol Museum on February 14, 2008.

Here's a description of the exhibit, taken from the museum's website: "Over 20 photographs highlight The University of Arizona's Phoenix Mars Mission, which lands on the Red Planet in May 2008. Also on display are scale models of the Phoenix Lander and the scientific instruments on board. The Phoenix Mars Mission was named after the mythical bird that rises from the ashes of its own fiery death and is born a new."

For additional details about the exhibit, read the museum's press release.
