  Lander - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A lander is a type of spacecraft which descends to come to rest on the surface of an astronomical body.
In this case landers employ aerobraking and parachutes to slow down, often with small landing rockets which fire just before impact to bring the lander to rest relatively gently.
The Rosetta probe, launched 2 March 2004, is planned to put a lander on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in 2014; due to the extremely low gravity of such bodies, Rosetta's landing system includes a harpoon launcher intended to anchor a cable in the surface and pull it down.

 Mars Exploration Rover Mission: The Mission
The spacecraft lander is a protective "shell" that houses the rover and protects it, along with the airbags, from the forces of impact.
The lander is a strong, lightweight structure, consisting of a base and three sides "petals" in the shape of a tetrahedron (pyramid-shaped).
The process of the rover moving off of the lander is called the egress phase of the mission.

 Mars Polar Lander
The Mars Polar Lander was to touch down on the southern polar layered terrain, between 73 S and 76 S, less than 1000 km from the south pole, near the edge of the carbon dioxide ice cap in Mars' late southern spring.
Attached to the lander spacecraft were a pair of small probes, the Deep Space 2 Mars Microprobes, which were to be deployed to fall and penetrate beneath the martian surface when the spacecraft reached Mars.
During cruise, the lander is attached to the cruise stage and enclosed in the 2.4 meter diameter aeroshell.

When you are looking to get away from it all, make Lander your destination.
Nestled against the foothills of the Wind River Mountains on the banks of the Popo Agie River, Lander is where Fremont County history began.
Lander saw the first white trappers in 1811, became a small military post in 1869 and now borders the Wind River Indian Reservation.

 ESA - Rosetta - The Rosetta lander
The box-shaped lander is carried on the side of the orbiter until it arrives at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
Once the orbiter is aligned correctly, the lander is commanded to self-eject from the main spacecraft and unfold its three legs, ready for a gentle touchdown at the end of the ballistic descent.
Immediately after touchdown, a harpoon is fired to anchor the lander to the ground and prevent it escaping from the comet’s extremely weak gravity.

 MarsNews.com - Mars Polar Lander
The cruise stage of the Polar Lander contained the two Deep Space 2 Microprobes, "Amundsen and Scott" (named for the South polar explorers of Earth) The lander and microprobes were in excellent health during launch and the nine-month transit to Mars.
There are a number of possible fates: perhaps the lander malfunctioned; perhaps it was destroyed by a landing on hazardous martian terrain, or buried in a blanket of soft, deep dust.
The ill-fated Mars Polar Lander, last heard from on Dec. 3, 1999, as it started a descent to the surface of the Red Planet, may be lying crippled in a huge crater, the chief mission scientist said on Thursday.

The box-shaped Lander is carried in piggyback fashion on the side of the Orbiter until it arrives at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
Once the Orbiter is aligned correctly, the ground station commands the Lander to self-eject from the main spacecraft and unfold its three legs, ready for a gentle touch down at the end of the ballistic descent.
The Lander structure consists of a baseplate, an instrument platform, and a polygonal sandwich construction, all made of carbon fibre.

 CNN - NASA offers little hope for wayward Mars probe - December 6, 1999
Controllers have operated on the assumption that the landing was successful because the lander was in excellent condition just prior to entry and analysis showed its trajectory was good.
The lander also was programmed to keep track of how long it has been since it was last contacted by Earth, and after six days to assume there was some type of failure and begin switching between backups on its own.
A lander failure would be a double blow to the JPL, which is still recovering from the September loss of the lander's sibling spacecraft, the Mars Climate Orbiter.

 Polar Lander Burn Delayed
Mars Polar Lander is currently 18.8 million kilometers (11.7 million miles) from Mars, approaching the planet at a speed of 4.8 kilometers per second (10,740 miles per hour) relative to the planet.
Mars Polar Lander will touch down on December 3 near the south pole of Mars and use a robot arm to scoop up soil samples that will be tested by scientific instruments onboard.
The lander also carries two microprobes that have been piggybacking on the spacecraft during its flight to the red planet.

As soon as the lander has come to a halt, the gas-filled bags will be released and the outer casing will open to reveal the inner workings.
E) is at low latitude to minimise the amount of insulation (and hence mass) needed to protect the lander from the cold Martian night.
