Watching Phoenix landing near the poles of Mars via 'SpaceVidcast' is something that was possible on Sunday via the MarsPhoenix feed on Twitter and UStream.tv.
Would this learning experience have been available in classrooms... on short notice?
7 Minutes of Terror - The Phoenix Mars Lander from SpaceVidcast on Vimeo. And Clarence Fisher reminds me that the Wikipedia Entry is now up-to-date.
Photos, Twitter Feed, and a Teacher 2.0 Podcast on the event are also available.
