Mars Global Surveyor update
You may have picked up news items about NASA losing contact with the Mars Global Surveyor probe, which has been orbiting Mars since 1996. Contact with the probe was lost about 2 weeks ago. A full update on the problems and potential solutions is available on the Planetary Society website, and makes interesting reading.
