Phoenix 5/25

Just read an article on the Phoenix mission to Mars. The NASA spacecraft Phoenix is due to land on Mars May 25.2008 Once on the surface of Mars several tests will be conducted. Phoenix is equipped with an eight foot robotic arm with a back-hoe on the end of it. Dig up some red planet dirt and conduct tests to see if it may have supported life at one time. Now what I propose is a mission exactly like that, with a space craft that can be returned to the earth. Then we would get more than data sent back by computer, but an actual hands on experiment. What do you think?
