Trailing one end of the wire in its beak, the Phoenix flew up into the darkness
once more. The tinkering sounds began again, and a spurt of falling debris rattled
in the leaves of the hedge. Suddenly it happened. There was a terrific burst of
blue light, a sharp squawk from the Phoenix, and a shower of sparks. Another
blue flash blazed up. The lights in the house, and down the whole street, flickered
and went out. In the blackness which followed, each stage of the Phoenix's
descent could ...

Phoenix, named after the mythical bird resurrected from the ashes, was aptly
named, as the craft flew many experiments originally on the lost MPL. JPL's
Charles Elachi got his wish. The landing of Phoenix was monitored by multiple
ground stations and by three Mars orbiters, nASA's Mars Odyssey, the Mars
reconnaissance Orbiter, and ESA's Mars Express. The Mars reconnaissance
Orbiter was able to image Phoenix during its parachute descent. Phoenix imaged
water ice under its ...

First, as I so facetiously joked to Rory, the forest plants directly underneath the
Phoenix' descent actually did get up on their holdfasts and literally 'walk away'
leaving the area bare. Second, the socalled 'dust cloud' was not dust sent up from
the descending Phoenix. It consisted of a substance which was released by the
fleeing 'trees', much as squids release ink when startled. It was formed either by a
release of some sort of spores or possibly fertilizer....” “Amy suddenly burst into

Members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, particularly bassist Flea (sitting), were
friends of River Phoenix. Singer Anthony Kiedis (left) referenced him in the 1991
hit "Give It Away": "There's a River born to be a giver; keep you warm, won't let
you shiver; his heart is never gonna wither..." River's death not only left behind
the films he did, but the knowledge of what might have been. There were parts
lined up into the future, many of them continuing Phoenix's descent into the
darker side of ...

For Phoenix, which landed in May of 2008, it was the first time a spacecraft was
imaged during the final descent onto a planetary body. HiRISE was pointed
toward the area of Phoenix's descent, and from a distance of about 472 miles (
760 km) away, it captured Phoenix with its parachute descending through the
Martian atmosphere. The image reveals the 30-foot (10-m)-wide parachute fully
inflated. “For Phoenix we got a bit lucky with HiRISE in terms of the geometry,
giving us a high ...

In the Second Descent, no barrier remained in place across an entrance — if, in
fact, any had ever existed. Those hunters who wished a greater challenge than
their days now held came to the Second Descent to hunt, for the creatures lurking
here were difficult to track and more difficult to capture, and the Nalzindar had
come to believe that this was the Descent upon which most of the predators who
lived within Abi' Abadshar made THE PHOENIX ENDANGERED {53)

They deceived the populace by insisting they were reestablishing the Han
dynasty, that the great good omen of a phoenix's descent had been witnessed,
and sages were present in the empire. All those who joined the rebellion rubbed
red on their foreheads as an auspicious symbol of the element of fire [the element
under which Han had ruled]. The hearts of the people were stirred to great
recklessness, and they joined the insurrection in droves. Several of Chang Ch'
eng's brothers ...
