Farewell Phoenix,and we thank you.
You have advanced the state of the art of our ever growing body of knowledge of te Final Frontier.
Here is a salute to the men and woman who, built, programmed, tested and ran this emissary to the planets.

So again, thank you Phoenix.
Even if you do not rise again from this night, your memory will live on.
