Just like London buses, I don’t post for a while, then two came along together. Actually, I’ll follow this one up with some other interesting news for next week.
Anyway, a lot of the new on National Public Radio (NPR) today has been about NASAs next landing on Mars, instead of being another “bouncing ball” based landing, this time the Phoenix Mars Lander will be a more traditional rocket assisted landing, easy down gently. One thing NPR didn’t cover was that the Power Architecture will be at the heart of the mission and the lander. The major news organisations are just picking this up from an IBM press release, see Yahoo coverage here.
As Bowie sang “Wonder if he’ll ever know, He’s in the best selling show, Is there life on Mars?”
