Sampling
Phoenix Robotic Arm Inspection - A vital instrument on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander is the robotic arm, which will dig into the icy soil and bring samples back to the science deck of the spacecraft for analysis. In September 2006 at a Lockheed Martin Space Systems clean room facility near Denver, a spacecraft technician inspects the arm during the assembly phase of the mission.

Using the robotic arm, built by JPL, the Phoenix mission will study the history of water and search for complex organic molecules in the ice-rich soil.
