From all the pieces of hardware that NASA sent to Mars, we do not hear about Mars Rekoncons's orbit nearly as much as we'd like. This is an incredible machine that drastically outstrips its original mission and continues to transmit important information to the Red Planet thanks to its kit of cameras and high-tech sensors.
It is expected that the main mission of the spaceship will last only two years but has already spent 13 years in orbit around Mars and seems to continue this impressive level far in the future. In a new publication on NASA's blog, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory reveals that the MRD just has a really unbelievable event: 60,000 trips around Mars. during orbit, she saw three completely new missions to land on the surface of Mars. NASA uses orbit to provide support for these missions, making it the most important multitask.
"MRO has given scientists and the public a new perspective on Mars," says John Johnston's JPL statement. "We have also supported NASA's fleet from the surface missions of Mars, allowing them to send their images and discoveries back to scientists on Earth."
The MRO HiRISE image system is perhaps the most famous tool available to it. , HiRISE sent wonderful glances to the surface of the planet and revealed things about the geography of the planet and the time that would otherwise be unknown. New clues about the remaining Martian water and the surface water history of the planet are part of the SMP mission from the outset.
60,000 trips around the planet are quite a feat, but the MRO is not even close to completion. Based on fuel consumption, NASA believes the spacecraft will continue to work well in the 2020s, and if things go well, there may be enough propellant to take it to the 2030s.
