Mars Orbiter in Safe Mode After Glitch


www.physorg.com

(AP) -- The Mars Odyssey orbiter was in safe mode Monday after a computer glitch prevented the 6-year-old spacecraft from relaying data from the twin rovers rolling across the Martian surface.

Project leaders said the Mars Odyssey was not in danger. Engineers discovered the problem Friday after a software glitch caused the onboard computers to reboot. The spacecraft last went into safe mode was in December when it was hit by a cosmic ray.

Interesting. First Cassini, now this? What exactly is going on?

Note that the Mars Odyssey orbiter relays information from the two rovers on the planet.

The Mars Odyssey has gone into safe mode many times over the years. It's really not uncommon for it to happen. As they said in the article it just happened last December. A quick search shows that it happened three times last year. Once in February, once in March, and once in December. And at least once in 2005.

Aye, that is true. But this is a conspiracy site, so I'm wondering if there might be a link between this event and the recent Cassini shut down event. It's probably nothing, but who knows?

I don't really believe in coincidences.
