SUMMARY: NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft deployed its high-gain antenna on Tuesday night, establishing a high-speed connection between the spacecraft and controllers back on Earth. Flight controllers tested the boom to ensure it can communicate with different locations on Earth and then pronounced the deployment "successful". Science instruments on the spacecraft are expected to begin collecting data later this month.
