LADEE Leaves Earth Orbit

Hey Space Placers!

With the stupid government shutdown it is hard to get spacecraft and space information due to the NASA websites being off line.

I was able to get an update on LADEE - see my 9/6/13 blogs. LADEE made a final orbital maneuver and is on a path that will lead to lunar orbit insertion on October 6th. Get more details here

NASA's next mission to Mars, MAVEN is in jeopardy due to the shutdown as the launch window that only comes along every 2+ years is getting closer and launch preps are on hold.
