Bye bye, Phoenix

A mission that lasted 5 months (meant for 3): Phoenix Lander no longer communicating with us here on earth. Watch video recap.. This was the mission that twittered. Oh, and Phoenix guest-blogged at Gizmodo, too.

UPDATE: How embarassing for the Pasadena Star News, the hometown paper for JPL. They mislead with their lede, saying that Phoenix has been digging on Mars for more than a year. Phoenix landed in May, on Memorial Day, making this a 5-month mission.
