NASA says its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has put itself into safe mode for the fourth time this year, but is maintaining communications. Safe mode was activated Wednesday morning, meaning the spacecraft has limited activities pending further instructions from ground controllers, the space agency said. Engineers have begun the process of diagnosing the problem prior to restoring the orbiter to normal science operations -- a process expected to take several days, NASA said in a statement.
NASA says its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has returned a dramatic oblique view of a Martian crater that a rover explored for two years. The new view of Victoria Crater shows layers on steep crater walls, difficult to see from straight overhead, plus wheel tracks left by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity between September 2005 and August 2007, the space agency said. The orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera shot it at an angle comparable to looking at landscape...
