I am sad to have to report that Phoenix has not been heard from since a week ago Sunday, and that today NASA has declared the mission to be at an end. They will continue to listen for a signal from Phoenix until the period of Mars solar conjunction begins around November 18. I'll have more to write on this later, but thought I should post so much now.
