NASA's Phoenix spacecraft launched Saturday morning from Cape Canaveral, Fla., on a 10-month journey to the north pole of Mars, where it is expected to be the first craft to taste the water of another planet.

The Delta II rocket carrying the 7-foot-tall lander lifted off at 5:26 a.m. on a scheduled 423million-mile journey that should deliver Phoenix to the Martian surface on May 25.

"Today's launch is the first step in the long journey to the surface of Mars," said Peter Smith, a University of Arizona astronomer who is lead scientist on the mission



I love them NASA dudes. Talk about firing up the imagination!! Wow. The waters of another world. Scrumptious!!
