Looks like the GRACE satellite mission is shutting down, low on fuel. Kind of like Cassini.

This satellite pair that, among other things, provides information that is used in estimating the amounts of Greenland and Antarctic ice cap mass change, has lasted a long time but the mission will be shut down soon.

G'night GRACE. Others are there to carry on your mission for you. You've been a good ship.
