  • Meteorological Station (MET) of the Phoenix Mission

    "It is important for the next exploration missions to learn more about the Mars planet climate. It is for this reason that the Phoenix robotic spacecraft landed on Mars in 2008 in order to search for environments suitable for microbial life on Mars, and to research the history of water there. The...
