[i]Scientists leading NASA's Phoenix Mars mission from the University of Arizona in Tucson sent commands to unstow its robotic arm on Wednesday morning.
Robotic arm manager Bob Bonitz explained during a press briefing how the arm was to be unstowed. "It's a series of seven moves, beginning with rotating the wrist to release the forearm from its launch restraint. Another series of moves releases the elbow from its launch restraints and moves the elbow from underneath the biobarrier."[/i]
