Date:4/6/2009

t form in liquid water, identified potential nutrients in the soil, and observed snow in the atmosphere. Phoenix's cameras captured more than 25,000 pictures, from grand landscapes to nanoscale images using the first atomic force microscope ever used outside Earth.

Throughout the mission, which ended in November 2008, Smith and his team controlled the lander from the University of Arizona's Science Operations Center, working closely with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., and Lockheed Martin Space Systems in Denver. An international assembly of scientific institutes in Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, and Switzerland also was involved.

Smith will deliver a public lecture on Thursday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Center for the Arts. Register for the free event at this Web site.

Samual F. B. Morse Medal

The Samuel Finley Breese Morse Medal, "for the encouragement of geographical research," will be presented to Barbara Borowiecki, professor emerita of geography, and William Roselle, director (retired) of the Golda Meir Library, at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Borowiecki made the initial suggestion that the AGS Library in New York be moved to UW-Milwaukee. Used by researchers around the world, the library today numbers more than 1.2 million items, including maps and atlases, books and periodicals, LANDSAT images, photographs, and globes.

She and Roselle prepared a detailed feasibility study that was used to generate support for the project. The pair oversaw many of the details of the library's relocation from uptown Manhattan to Milwaukee, a distance of nearly 1,000 miles. The move took place from July 26 through Sept. 12, 1978, in 16 full-size moving vans.

On Friday, April 17, Roselle will describe "the moving experience" in the Department of Geography's seminar series. The talk will begin at 3:30 p.m. in Room 127 Memorial Hall. A reception will follow.
