Well, break out the bubbly! The following report certainly sounds
very good indeed:
256 GMT (10:56 p.m. EDT)
Aquisition of signal right on time! The Mars Odyssey spacecraft has
emerged from behind the Red Planet exactly on schedule and Earth
has locked onto the probe's signal. This means that the burn has put
Odyssey where it was supposed to.
The flight control team and senior managers at JPL have broke out
into applause and hugs all around!
