After ground testing and careful review over the last two days, MAVEN was successfully brought out of Safehold Mode this afternoon. The spacecraft is operating nominally in Earth-Point Mode with high-rate communications. All the instruments are safe and are currently off. The spacecraft will be monitored over the weekend to ensure a safe condition before the instruments are turned back on.
