Misiune pe Marte

Historic pictures sent from Mars

A Nasa spacecraft has sent back historic first pictures of an unexplored region of Mars.

The Mars Phoenix lander touched down in the far north of the Red Planet, after a 680 million-km (423 million-mile) journey from Earth.
The probe is equipped with a robotic arm to dig for water-ice thought to be buried beneath the surface.
It will begin examining the site for evidence of the building blocks of life in the next few days.

A signal confirming the lander had reached the surface was received at 2353 GMT on 25May (1953 EDT; 0053 BST on 26 May).
Engineers and scientists at Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California clapped and cheered when the landing signal came through.
"Phoenix has landed - welcome to the northern plain of Mars," a flight controller announced.

The probe has sent back pictures of a flat landscape with few rocks

The final seven minutes of the probe's 10-month journey to Mars were regarded as the hardest part of the mission.
The probe had to survive a fiery plunge through the planet's thin atmosphere, slowing from a speed of nearly 21,000km/h (13,000 mph).

Soft landing

It released a parachute, used pulsed thrusters to slow to a fast walking speed, and then descended the last few metres to the Martian soil to land on three legs.
The Nasa team monitored each stage of the descent and landing process through radio messages relayed to Earth via the Odyssey satellite in orbit around Mars.
"In my dreams, it couldn't have gone as perfectly as it did tonight," said Barry Goldstein, Phoenix project manager at JPL.
Nasa found out more about the landing when pictures from the probe reached the Earth.
The first images showed the "Arctic plain" where Phoenix came to rest - a region of Mars that has never been seen up close before.
Other shots confirmed that the probe's solar arrays had unfurled successfully, and that it had landed safely on its legs.

Phoenix carries seven science instruments

The spacecraft will begin its three-month science mission in the next few days.
It will use a robotic arm to dig through the protective Martian topsoil and lift samples of both soil and ice to its deck for scientific analysis.
Dr Tom Pike of Imperial College, London, is part of the British team involved in the project.
"The main goal of the mission is to get below the surface of Mars to where we are almost certain there is water," he told BBC News.
He said orbiters flying around Mars had surveyed the landing site in great detail and found signs that water ice is buried 10cm or less below the surface.
"Water, of course, is of critical importance because it is one of the building blocks - one of the essential habitats we need - for life," he said.

High failure rate

Landing on Mars is a notoriously tricky business. There has been about a 50% failure rate on all Mars missions since Russia launched the first one in 1960.
Phoenix is an apt name for the current mission, as it rose from the ashes of two previous failures.
In September 1999, the Mars Climate Orbiter spacecraft crashed into the Red Planet following a navigation error caused when technicians mixed up "English" (imperial) and metric units.
A few months later, another Nasa spacecraft, the Mars Polar Lander (MPL), was lost near the planet's South Pole.
Phoenix uses hardware from an identical twin of MPL, the Mars Surveyor 2001 Lander, which was cancelled following the two consecutive failures.
The probe was launched on 4 August 2007 on a Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The ambition of Clomid therapy in treating infertility is to locate general ovulation sooner than cause the condition of numerous eggs. In olden days ovulation is established, there is no perks to increasing the dosage supplementary . Numerous studies accompany that pregnancy usually occurs during the to begin three months of infertility cure and treatment beyond six months is not recommended. Clomid can producer side effects such as ovarian hyperstimulation (rare), visual disturbances, nausea, diminished "standing" of the cervical mucus, multiple births, and others.

Clomid is again prescribed past generalists as a "leading oblique" ovulation induction therapy. Most patients should undergo the fertility "workup" prior to start any therapy. There could be many causes of infertility in addition to ovulatory disorders, including endometriosis, tubal malady, cervical banker and others. Also, Clomid remedial programme should not be initiated until a semen criticism has been completed.

With the introduction of 1080p HD video recording, photographers now have the chance to move into the field of film and experiment with a bevy of

Samsung has crammed its cameras with a variety of software like

The Chromebook obviously still requires these
updates but they are managed in a very different
way. If you are using a DSL modem, are tethering through
a cell phone, or are still on dial-up, you probably have a
static IP address, and will actually have to enter in information to this device to get connected to the Internet.
While the Inspiron and Samsung both offer the new i3 processor, the Acer
AS5253 comes with a quick AMD-E series 2.
