Farewell Mars Phoenix Lander!

This will sound odd but it was the Mars Phoenix Lander that got me to really use Twitter.  Sure I was on it but @MarsPhoenix moved me from an observer to someone who was getting Tweets on my cell.  Someone who wasn’t just lurking but was posting!  I moved from being a follower to a leader.  I read all about it, how it’s used in education, in medicine, in libraries, in business, in media.  And it was all because of a little lander.

The Mars Phoenix Lander stopped transmitting today. 

If you don’t know Twitter you need to start from the bottom and work up.

MarsPhoenix [From Phoenix mission ops: Phoenix is no longer communicating with Earth. We’ll continue to listen, but it’s likely its mission has ended.]
