This image, released on Memorial Day, May 26, 2008, shows the American flag and a mini-DVD on the Phoenix's deck, which is about 3 ft. above the Martian surface. The mini-DVD from the Planetary Society contains a message to future Martian explorers, science fiction stories and art inspired by the Red Planet, and the names of more than a quarter million earthlings. Grandpa put the names of all his young earthlings (grandchildren) on the DVD. So we will be expecting messages from martians any day now. How cool is that!!!
