Phoenix arrives, MRO snaps a photo

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter managed to snap a photo of the Phoenix during its parachute-aided descent to Mars. Our technology continues to amaze me, if we can have an orbiter of another planet take a photo of another satellite descending to that planet, what can’t we do?

This photo is truly historic, and is making the rounds on the web today. People really do get excited about this stuff, and I can see why.
