Which do You consider among the highlights of the MGS mission ?
( other than those listed under the multimedia link at http://mpfwww.jpl.nasa.gov/mgs/ )

In my opinion photographing both the Martian moons should be added to these highlights, and MGS also pictured the MER landing sites, etc...

Shouldn't that be 1997-2006?

Although we've read reports of a tumbling MGS spacecraft, I still didn't see an official NASA announcement that MGS is dead ... or am I wrong?
By The Way, which type ( type I, II, III, ... ) of trajectory did MGS perform towards Mars ?
Type II I believe? mars.gif

I am not saying it is dead. I am saying that the images would be from 1997-2006, because it is still 2006.

With MGS gone, how many orbiters are still around Mars (4 I guess) ?

Interesting -- that means that there is now no remote sensing in or around Mars still in working order that arrived there in the 20th century.

That's some type of milestone, I'd say...
