These high resolution images of space scenes are matted to perfection on quality card-stock board and feature a description of the image on back.
The Phoenix Mars Lander begins to shut down operations as winter sets in. The far northern latitudes on Mars experience no sunlight during winter. This marks the end of the mission because the solar panels can no longer charge the batteries in the lander and the frost covering the region as the atmosphere cools will bury the lander in ice.
This rendition of the Phoenix lander was created by artist Corby Waste of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
