Mars Phoenix Lander and Twitter

Anybody who reads this blog on a regular basis knows I work at the Jet Propulsion Lab. Well, I was sweating tonight as the Phoenix Lander approached Mars. The good news is that we appear to have a successful landing. I also have to say that the neatest part of watching the NASA Phoenix Lander touch down on Mars this evening were the Tweets from Twitter during the "seven minutes of terror." Neat stuff!
