MESSENGER mission controllers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied 
Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., conducted the last of six 
planned maneuvers on April 24 to raise the spacecraft's minimum altitude 
sufficiently to extend orbital operations and further delay the probe's 
inevitable impact onto Mercury's surface.
