Mars Climate Orbiter Mishap Report

This Review Panel Report represents the work of a review team contracted by NASA to analyze its programs and practices. Released this week, the report discusses findings relating to the failure of the Mars Climate Orbiter on September 23, 1999. The report also summarizes lessons learned from the mishap, gives an overview of NASA project management, identifies common themes related to recent failures, and makes recommendations for improving the likelihood of future success for NASA missions. An additional report, from the Mars Independent Assessment Team chaired by Thomas Young, will be available by the end of March.
