The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has turned 10 today. The mission was only supposed to last two years. Do you believe that MRO will last another 5 years?

I'm at least 90% sure anything NASA dies is a lie, so I'm sure they'll say that "orbitter" that doesn't exist could be 100

If something last more then 2 years, then it probably won't break anytime soon.

The way NASA builds stuff I wouldn't be suprised. But I have no clue.

I think it might, but even if it doesn't we've more than gotten our money's worth out of it.

Probably another twenty years, until the government send someone to find out why it hasn't died. Then they'll kill it. And try to make it look good.

My scientific guess is yes, even though I'm not a scientist.

Idk the specifics, but it depends on how much battery it has. They could power down instruments in theory to extend it's lifespan. It could probably last another 5 if they want it to.

Any comment by me would be redundant.

No clue but coming down on the side of optimism.

I'm going to say yes, based on absolutely nothing.

I have reviewed your evidence and I agree, it will last another 5 years
