NASA: The Phoenix Has Landed! Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas

The Phoenix Mars Lander has touched down upon the surface of the red planet, according to NASA.

Unlike its rover siblings, the Phoenix's priority is to discover whether or not life exists on Mars.

NASA has been promoting the mission aggressively, as it has the potential to reshape our viewpoint of the Universe (not to mention life itself).

While the prospects of finding current life are probably dim, the Martian lander can help us discover whether or not Martian soil "is safe" for not only humans, but future creatures (like pigs) as well.

Note: NASA is going to be posting images from Phoenix within about 90 minuets, although you can watch the live broadcast from NASA HQ over here.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
