STARDUST Status Report
June 16, 2000
There were two Deep Space Network
(DSN) tracking passes in the past week as STARDUST returns to its cruise activities.
All subsystems onboard the spacecraft are performing normally.
The remaining Navigation Camera images were transmitted to Earth, bringing
the total number of images sent to the ground at twenty-eight. Flight
sequence SC018 is the current sequence, and sequence SC019 has already been
sent to the spacecraft and will start next week.
STARDUST Outreach participated in a Science Teachers Workshop with the
Claremont School District in Southern California.
