Assuming that there are no MGS type anomalies and funding holds out (according to NASA's FY09 budget, the current extension ends in September); how much longer can Odyssey remain operational with the fuel onboard?

(I know you guys are strict about starting new threads, but I couldn't find any other thread related to this topic.)

Great that made my sol mars.gif

Remember Mars Global Surveyor worked for 10 years ( 7th Nov 1996 - 2nd Nov 2006 ) so fingers crossed that Mars Odyssey will go to 2010 cool.gif
