In 6 days, NASA will begin listening for signals from the Mars Phoenix Lander in the off chance that it survived winter season at the LZ.

Fingers crossed! So long as they survive the landing and the first few days, these machines - Russian or American - have a pretty good record of keeping on working longer than planned or hoped.

Let's hope so, but I seriously doubt it. It's onw thing surviving for a few years in the reletively cmfortable temperatures that the two rovers have, it's wuite another surviving a martian winter, but fingers crossed....

No signals. There are a couple more listening sessions slated for later in the year.
