    Mars Phoenix, RIP

    NASA's Mars Phoenix Lander has finished its mission and powered down, and science fans will mourn its passing.

    As fall turns to winter on the Martian surface, the Lander will be buried in carbon dioxide ice as temperatures plummet. Its batteries are dead and the robot, which discovered the first proof of ice on Mars, has stopped transmitting. Farewell, sweet prince.
