The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is approaching Mars,this is going to be the most difficult part of the mission it has to be caught by Mar's gravity in order to orbit Mars......I really hope this works,it will be very important if we plan to send a manned mission to mars!!

..and now the censoring, obscuring, and avoidance of anything of substance begins - unless NASA finally decides that possible worldwide chaos (which is what will happen, according to the Brookings Report on discovery of alien artefacts/species) - is worth it - in order to get a massive budget boost..
I keep hoping that NASA funding dries up enough so that they'll have to make that choice, or face closure..

It sounds like you are advocating the release of false material on the behalf of NASA in order satisfy your own unfounded and baseless conspiracy theories. And it your comment has very little to do with this mission in particular.

If i heard correctly then the orbiter won't be sending back any data until November....hopfully nothing happens to it in the mean time!

er no, Im not advocating the false release of anything - just casually pointing out that NASA itself tends to adhere to the findings of the Brookings Report, that it commissioned - which among other things - suggests that any potential evidence of any kind, of non terrestrial intelligence, shouldn't ever be released.

Kinda makes the 'thrill of discovery and exploration' that NASA coasts on, rather bogus, wouldn't you say - if they are operating from the point of view that certain genres of data will NOT be conveyed to the public, even if they find/found it.

If you don't know about the Brookings Institute report, which NASA commissioned way back in the early days of the space race, then look it up.

Challenges Ahead for NASA's Mars Orbiter By ALICIA CHANG, AP Science Writer
Sat Mar 11, 5:42 PM ET



PASADENA, Calif. - The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter passed the biggest test of its life by safely entering orbit around the Red Planet, joining a constellation of circling spacecraft. But other challenges lie ahead.

ADVERTISEMENT

Next month, the two-ton orbiter will begin another critical phase in its $720 million mission. It will spend seven months dipping into Mars' upper atmosphere to shrink its current elliptical orbit to a circular one, which will take it as close as 200 miles above the surface.
