Mars Odyssey in - now out - of Safe Mode

Editor's 24 Mar update: Sources now report that Mars Odyssey is out of safe mode, with the spacecraft behaving nominally. Apparently, the trigger was something in the attitude control system that caused a similar event last year; the ultimate cause is still being worked out.

Editor's 23 Mar note: Word has it that Mars Odyssey went into safe mode on March 22, 2006 at approximately 7:30 UTC. Stay tuned.
