The Phoenix lander touched down on Mars just recently, on May 25, 2008. Scientists sent the lander to the Martian North Pole, where water is thought to be just below the surface. The Phoenix has a robotic arm that is designed to dig below the surface soil to the water ice underneath. It's equipped with a mobile lab that will allow it to analyze the ice and soil.

According to NASA, the Phoenix's mission is to look for signs of life where frozen water and soil meet.
