They didn't manage to get into the orbit that they had originally planned for, which was designed for atmospheric/planetary science. The five gazillion review panels now required by NASA didn't seem to do much good, then. But anyway, the orbit that the spacecraft is stuck in now is much more suited for magnetosphere mapping, and I'm a magnetosphere guy, so I'm happy.
