Current location?[edit]

Where is this probe now? Is it still in Mars orbit?

Yes, it is still in Mars orbit, it's orbit is stable until at least 2022.
Where did that fact come from? Andy120290 22:13, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
I don't know, but the German website Astronews.com claims it is and will stay in orbit until entering the Martian atmosphere probably in "the next decade". --Roentgenium111 (talk) 14:13, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Photos attributed to Mariner 9 are incorrect[edit]

The photos of Scamander Vallis and Warrego Velles are not from Mariner 9. They are MOC images from the Mars Global Surveyor. This needs to be corrected. Schaffman (talk) 22:13, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Done, but you are welcome to be bold to correct obvious mistakes. ChiZeroOne (talk) 22:48, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
