Mars Probe Probably Lost Forever 167

David Shiga writes, "NASA's silent Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) spacecraft is likely lost forever. The space agency attempted to take a picture of the 10-year-old spacecraft using the newer Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, but did not detect it, either because its orbit has shifted since last contact, or because it isn't reflecting enough sunlight to be visible. NASA has now ordered its Opportunity rover to listen from the planet's surface for MGS's radio beacon. If that fails, the agency may call on the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft to join the search. But MGS may already have run out of power and NASA officials are not optimistic about recovering it."

Comment Re:I sleep in my bed (Score 1) 233

It's true - My wife and I have been married 3 or so years, and since I bring my laptop in the bedroom to work until we fall asleep, we never have sex. Well, I say never, maybe 2-3 times per year.

Not that she's bad looking either - she's a fitness trainer with ~15% body fat. I just have too much to do. But it does promote insomnia as well - been taking pills to sleep for about 2 years now.

I guess I should rethink that practice.
