Stardust Status Report
July 6, 2001
There was one Deep Space Network tracking pass this week. All subsystems
are performing normally.
The Cometary and Interstellar Dust Analyzer (CIDA) instrument continues to
observe the interstellar dust stream with an optimal spacecraft attitude
when not in communication with Earth.
The remaining Navigation Camera's guide star images continue to be
downlinked. Analyses of the images continue to show no re-contamination.

comet sample return mission - please visit the Stardust home page:
