Mars Odyssey spacecraft illustration NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft tweaked its course slightly Friday, the final course correction before the spacecraft enters orbit around Mars later this month. The spacecraft fires its small thrusters for three seconds at 12 am EDT (0400 GMT) Friday, changing its velocity by 0.077 meters per second. Project managers said the maneuver went exactly as planned. The maneuver is the last course correction planned before Odyssey enters orbit around Mars at approximately 10:30 pm EDT October 23 (0230 GMT October 24).
