  • [1] To analyze and interpret the chemical record, the 2007 Phoenix Mars Lander includes four wet chemistry cells. These Wet Chemistry Laboratories (WCLs), part of the Microscopy, Electrochemistry, and Conductivity Analyzer (MECA) package, each consist of a lower “beaker” containing sensors designed to analyze the chemical properties of the regolith and an upper “actuator assembly” for adding soil, water, reagents, and stirring. The beaker contains an array of sensors and electrodes that include… CONTINUE READING
