MRO – Safe Mode No More

NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is on the mend after a long stint in intensive care – what the wizards at the Jet Propulsion Lab call “safe mode.”

Engineers there were able to upload some new software – which they hope will stop MRO’s computers from spontaneously rebooting.  Are they using Vista or something??  Anyway they believe the new software patch has solved the problem and the science should resume in earnest soon. One thing good for Mars lovers – when MRO calls the help desk – it doesn’t end up in voice mail hell.
