Nozomi

A Japanese Mars probe launched July 4 1998. Designated Planet-B throughout its planning and design stages, the probe received the name Nozomi (the Japanese word for ‘hope’) immediately after launch. The craft was set to study the Martian atmosphere and ionosphere and examine the interaction between the ionosphere and the solar wind. But a trajectory alteration used up to much fuel, and the probe was unable to reach Mars orbit. Attempts to salvage the probe were finally abandoned in 2003.
