This mosaic of images taken by NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander's Surface Stereo Imager shows Phoenix's workspace, informally named "Wonderland," with the major trenches and features that have been informally named as of Sol 84 (August 19, 2008), the 84th Martian day after landing.

The workspace is on the north side of the lander.

The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development is by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.

Photojournal Note: As planned, the Phoenix lander, which landed May 25, 2008 23:53 UTC, ended communications in November 2008, about six months after landing, when its solar panels ceased operating in the dark Martian winter.
