It’s Official: RIP Envisat

The European Space Agency (ESA) announced in an email on behalf of the Envisat Mission Manager that ESA had declared Envisat operations ended.
The investigation into the failure of Envisat has apparently proposed one of two scenarios: that either the power regulator failed blocking telemetry commands, or that safe mode was triggered, irreparably, by a short circuit.

A press release has been issued.
