Zombie Phoenix

From Gizmodo:

NASA scientists have been trying to resurrect the Phoenix Mars Lander. Sadly, they gave up last week. Happily, there's still hope. If the Phoenix's hardware survives the extreme—150ยบ F of the Marian winter—NASA controllers will begin trying to revive it again in Spring. They will do so by issuing commands from the two Mars orbiters, and wishing that the probe would have enough strength to restart. Hopefully it will be successful.
