PASADENA, Calif., March 13 (UPI) -- Engineers have revived a failed radiation experiment aboard NASA's Mars Odyssey space probe. The instrument, which is intended to help scientists understand the amounts and types of radiation Mars-bound astronauts would be exposed to, failed during the spacecraft's cruise to the Red Planet last year. Ground-control teams were able to get their first radiation science data from Mars on Wednesday.
