MARS SURVEYOR 98 MISSION STATUS
January 22, 1999
The Mars Polar Lander Trajectory Correction Maneuver -1 was executed as planned, on Thursday morning, 1/21/99 at 12:30 UTC. All events were nominal. The spacecraft was out of contact for less than 20 minutes: during the slew to the burn attitude, the maneuver, and slew back to earth point. There was no difficulty locking onto the signal after the burn. Spacecraft health was excellent after the burn, and real-time doppler data indicated that the maneuver was very close to predicts.
The Mars Climate Orbiter continues in quiet cruise with nothing significant to report.
