This toaster, a shrine to NASA's Mar's Phoenix lander, was kept in a freezer in my bedroom for a year broadcasting via webcam, waiting for a signal from the actual lander. NASA pronouced Pheonix destroyed by ice over the harsh Martian winter, so the shrine never reactivated. Scroll down for photo essay of project epilogue. 

After the final transmission, a funerary mission was launched to the myrdalsjokull glacier in Iceland, where dust covers ice as is it does at the phoenix lander site on Mars. 

A toaster shrine returned to it's native habitat. 

The last view of the shrine before it is buried in an icy grave.
