Mars Orbiter

NASA launches spacecraft destined for Mars.

The Mars orbiter is on its way to the Red Planet. The craft is on a mission to collect more data on the planet than all combined previous missions. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter soared into Florida's blue sky atop an Atlas Five rocket to begin its seven-month journey this morning.

A previous attempt was scrubbed yesterday because of a glitch during fueling and computer problems.
