NASA Update – Curiosity Out of Safe Mode

NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory Project received confirmation from Mars Sunday (Nov. 10) that the Curiosity rover has successfully transitioned back into nominal surface operations mode. Curiosity had been in safe mode since Nov. 7, when an unexpected software reboot (also known as a warm reset) occurred during a communications pass with the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Mission science planning will resume tomorrow, and Curiosity science operations will recommence on Thursday. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/msl/news/jpl/msl20131112.html#.UoKwuKVU47g
