Mars Express Status Report - November 2007
A small, but significant, increase in the OMEGA cooling time has been detected. On request from the OMEGA PI a number of observations were cancelled to allow for a proper investigation of the anomaly. It should be noted that the OMEGA cryo-cooler has already greatly exceeded its anticipated lifetime. The anomaly is being investigated, and OMEGA observations continue as planned.
The status of data delivery by the various PI Teams to the Planetary Science Archive (PSA) has improved; however, the science data archive for the nominal mission is still not complete.
On 23 November, Mars Express will perform orbit #5000 around Mars.
