The American Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced the resumption of work and scientific research of the Martian orbital probe MAVEN.

NASA's MAVEN Mars Orbiter Returns to Service After Months of Failure

Recall that MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolutio) is an automatic interplanetary station for studying the atmosphere of Mars. The probe was launched in November 2013 and went into orbit around Mars in September 2014.

The station returned to normal operations on May 28, 2022, having recovered from an extended stay in safe mode, the agency said.

In February, the spacecraft experienced problems with its inertial measurement units (IMUs). The mission team diagnosed a problem with these navigational instruments and developed a spacecraft stellar navigation system that would allow the MAVEN mission to continue over the next decade.

The team was already working on the development of “star mode” – a star navigation system without an IMU – due to be implemented in October 2022. As NASA notes, developing and transitioning to stellar navigation mode is standard practice when IMUs fail on aging orbiters.
