MRO

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) is a NASA multipurpose spacecraft designed to conduct reconnaissance and exploration of Mars from orbit.
Launched in 2005, when MRO entered orbit, it joined five other active spacecraft in orbit of or on the planet: Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Express, Mars Odyssey, and two Mars Exploration Rovers; a then record for most spacecraft operational in Mars vicinity. Today the mission is still operative and sending data to Earth.
