STARDUST Status Report

April 21, 2000

There was one Deep Space Network (DSN) tracking pass during the past week and the spacecraft performance remains normal.

Cruise flight sequence SC016 is currently active and sequence SC017 will go active next week, which includes the next aerogel grid position update, moving the grid to its full open position.

Education and Public Outreach (E/PO) participated in a pilot program with the California State University Los Angeles instructor staff to impart knowledge of NASA's planetary exploration program into the college classroom.
