The Mars Global Surveyor

The Mars Global Surveyor was launched in 1996 and marked the return of an American spacecraft on Mars after over twenty years of NASA’s absence from this sector. The Surveyor was operative up to almost the end of 2006. From 2 November 2006 communications with the probe were interrupted and the technicians believe it is now to be considered lost.
