Countdown Nears: Final Tests

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft performed an integrated system test with its Atlas V rocket on Monday, August 1, 2005, in the Atlas Vertical Integration Facility. This test confirmed the team's ability to communicate with the orbiter atop the rocket. Preparations are underway for a final simulated countdown on Thursday, August, 4, 2005.
