Science R.I.P. Phoenix Lander

Has anyone else been following the tragic death of NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander via its Twitter feed?
It’s bizarrely affecting.
Not sure how soon arm will freeze after 1st heater is turned off. Depends on the weather. But saving that power (250 watt hrs/sol) is good.
I should stay well-preserved in this cold. I’ll be humankind’s monument here for centuries, eons, until future explorers come for me ;-)
Many questions about next Martian summer and will I wake up? It is beyond expectations. But if it happens you’ll be among the 1st to know.
In case we don’t get this chance again, thank you all so much for the questions, comments & good wishes over the mission. It’s been awesome
