Still going strong! :-)

A joint ESA and NASA mission, Ulysses (named after the hero of Greek legend) has charted the reaches of space above and below the poles of the Sun for more than seventeen years. It provided the first-ever map of the heliosphere - the sphere of influence of the Sun - in the four dimensions of space and time.

Ulysses was scheduled to stop working 1. July 2008, but she continues to work...
