The Phoenix Mars Lander is supposed to touchdown in the northern arctic plains of Mars today. Data collected by the probe hopes to provide important answers to the following questions: 1) can the Martian arctic support life; 2) what is the history of water at the landing site; and 3) how is the Martian climate affected by polar dynamics? More info on the mission here.
