Everyone has a damn blog these days, including, apparently, the late Mars Phoenix lander.

It had been posting witty, informative, and occasionally heartbreaking via Twitter (courtesy of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Veronica McGregor, late of Montreal), where its feed has over 30,000 subscribers.

Sadly, last week’s posts were the robot’s last, as the intrepid space ace is now no more. It signed off with, “01010100 01110010 01101001 01110101 01101101 01110000 01101000 <3."

It will, however, live on in cyberspace, where you can relive all over again
