Onward to Mars (almost)

Author: JT Smith

CBS News reports: "NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft successfully entered orbit
late Tuesday around the Red Planet, where the space agency suffered
embarrassing back-to-back failures on its previous two missions.
Odyssey remained on a precise, "bull's-eye" course late Wednesday, 200
days after it left Earth to search for signs of water -- -- and
therefore life -- on the red planet, scientists said."
