ESA is finally updating Mars Express Windows 98-based software


The European Space Agency (ESA) has finally decided to give the Mars Express probe a software update. It’s been running on a 20-year-old operating system all this time, and the organisation figured an update might increase its chance of discovering the secrets of the red planet.

Together with its friendly water probe, the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (MARSIS), the Mars Express’ mission is to uncover secrets hidden under the surface of Mars, learning it’s composition and the like. Most importantly its trying to find water and, by extension, life on Mars. It already has found water (opens in new tab), but there’s still more work to be done.

A brand new writer in the fields, Fatima has been taken under my electric spark's RGB- rich and ensures she doesn't engage in excessive snark on the website. It's unclear what command and Conquer are; however, she can talk for hours about the odd rhythm games, hardware, product reviews, and MMOs that were popular in the 2000s. Fatima has been creating various announcements, previews, and other content while here, but particularly enjoys writing regarding Products' latest news in the market she's currently addicted to. She is likely talking to an additional blogger with her current obsession right now.
