Will Deimos Be Next?

Russian news site Novosti says that the Russian government is planning on launching an unmanned mission to the Mars moon of Phobos in 2009. The vehicle is expected to arrive on the moon in 2010, and depart for Earth in 2011 carrying soil samples.

The story doesn't say whether or not the Russians expect to find any leather goddesses on the small moon, but you can bet this is a prelude to landing on Mars' other moon and beginning secret work to turn it into a colony ship.
