Global Surveyor Continues Its Watch on the Red Planet SpaceDaily

Weather reports from Mars, global mapping, inspection of potential landing sites, more data about the red planet than from all previous missions – no problem for the hardworking Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft. In fact, the Global Surveyor has been so successful that it earned an extension following conclusion of its prime mapping mission early in 2001. The second extension began in April 2002 and will continue the mission into late 2004.
