Artist Concept of Nozomi Spacecraft Image 2:
Nozomi travelled for over five years after leaving Earth in 1998. It had to give up its orbit around Mars due to an unrecoverable malfunction in 2003. Following its final decision, ground control center sent a command, from 8:45pm to 9:23pm of the day, to change its trajectory to lower an impact percentage of colliding with Mars.
