Last week, NASA announced the demise of the Mars Phoenix mission, ostensibly because the setting sun at Mars's north pole caused the lander to run out of power.

Note: Except for this picture, I guarantee that all of these are fakes.

P.S. For those who want to continue to get updates on the Mars Phoenix findings, try Twitter.
