The Phoenix mission, led by the University of Arizona on behalf of NASA, has been in the news quite a bit lately, but with all the coverage of the mission you may be wondering where to go to get multimedia content — well wonder no more.
The university is adding free movies to iTunes U, a part of the iTunes Store made available by Apple to educational institutions. The movies range in length from just over one minute to almost 50 minutes.
The spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral on August 4, 2007 and landed on May 25, 2008. Phoenix will examine the ice on Mars’ nothern plains to see if the planet could be a habitable environment.
