  • Good evening. Tonight on the Channel 6 News, we will be taking a closer look at the weather on Mars.
  • I'm here with planetary scientist, Bob Smith. Thank you for coming, Mr. Smith!
  • It's a pleasure to be here!
  • In May 2008, after a 10 month journey, the robotic spacecraft named Phoenix finally landed on Mars. Now, Mr. Smith, how long did this spacecraft last on Mars?
  • Phoenix lasted 5 months before the dark, cold winter set in.
  • And what was the main goal of the Phoenix?
  • One of the main goals of Phoenix was to search for water and understand daily weather and climate patterns on Mars.
  • What exactly will you do with any new findings made by this robotic spacecraft?
  • Scientists believe that any new finding made by this robotic probe will also directly benefit our ability to recognize how Earth's climate works.
  • Alright, and where did the Phoenix explore on Mars?
  • Phoenix explored a frigid, open plain located about 70 degrees latitude on the edge of the permanently frozen North Polar Cap.
