Inspired by Phoenix: "Arrival," by Stuart Atkinson

Stuart Atkinson is a space enthusiast and wordsmith whose blog, Cumbrian Sky, frequently contains evocative poetry inspired by dramatic events in space exploration. He's written a poem, "Arrival," for Phoenix' impending landing, which I liked a great deal. In fact I liked it so much that decided to attempt a dramatic reading (mp3 format, 1 MB). I hope you like it.

We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?

Consider a gift to our Space Policy and Advocacy program to fuel more missions, more science, and more exploration.
