The Red Planet

Remember when they used to say Mars was the "fire" planet??
I just heard on the news that today it is negative 112 degrees farenheit on Mars! They are hoping the ($557 million) Phoenix Mars Lander can get its work done before it freezes up! The weather is supposed to get to -200 degrees! Holy Cow!
So the purpose of this mission is to determine if organic life is possible on Mars... In -200 degree weather??? yeah. right. Do we really need to spend this kind of money to see if organic life can grow on Mars???

It's hard to understand why they spend money on things like this..
