Latest theory about the disappearance of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter? It's not a bug, it's a feature. Oh well, it'd been there for 10 years, I suppose it'd fully depreciated. Or something like that.
Hopefully it wasn't another conversion mistake.
The MRO did not vanish; the MSG (Mars Global Surveyor) did. The MRO is working fine, thank you.
The MGS lasted four times its expected mission life. I wish I had a computer that lasted that long.
