Have we sent any sattelite or robots to mars moons?

We hear so much about life or water on mars, what about its 2(maybe 3)

moons? Phobos and Deios

Has Nasa sent a probe there yet?

    No, because they are not very interesting places.

    They are basically "captured objects". They are large, stray asteroids that were not formed at the same time as Mars.

    This makes their study not very important in the study of mars.

    The Russians attempted it, but the probe failed on the way to Mars.

    We assume they're rocky, captured asteroids, so NASA isn't all that interested in them (at least, when compared to Mars itself.)

    The Russians have taken close up pictures. I think MRO has as well. But there haven't been any landers as yet.

    Significant amounts of water are not expected on the moons of Mars.

    No, not as of right now. However, China and the US are working together on this one thing.We have no other ties with China. One will launch probably mid 2009.
