A much more accurate description of Aeroassist maneuvers is located at Marshall Space Flight Center's In-space propulsion website. [1]

MCO did not fail because of "an error in the execution of the aerobraking maneuver", it failed because a unit conversion. The trajectory error caused the spacecraft to enter the atmosphere at lower than designed limits and was destroyed because of this.

I have been bold and performed the merge to aerobrake. Kcordina 09:56, 28 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
