MAVEN: On track in deep-dip maneuver #3

11698582_10153628948407868_3525870588043417085_nAnalysis by the MAVEN navigation team shows that the spacecraft is still within the targeted atmospheric deep-dip corridor.

As a result, no maneuver has been made to adjust the location of the spacecraft within the corridor since the beginning of deep-dip #3. The density of Mars’ atmosphere at periapsis is decreasing slightly with time, as predicted by some of the models. [More at link]
