Mr. O reaches orbit!

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, fondly known as "Mr. O," has reached orbit around Mars. Here are stories from NASA and Space.com, and this story has more information on Mr. O itself.

Here also is a list of top ten facts about Mr. O. As you see in the number one fact, Mr. O is indeed "orbiting" Mars, but isn't (as far as I understand) actually in position to start taking data, because it has to do some aerobraking and come into a circular orbit later on this year.

Congratulations to all the engineers who designed Mr. O and its systems.

Mars ain't no place, to raise your kids.

In fact it's cold as hell.
