Stardust Status Report

May 17, 2002

There were two Deep Space Network (DSN) tracking passes this week and all subsystems are normal. The power subsystem's performance continues to be excellent.

JPL issued a news release on the Guinness World Records certifying aerogel as the lightest weight solid. The Stardust project has since received many requests for additional information from industry, media and education/public outreach-related organizations.

Good Housekeeping awarded the Stardust web site as their "Site of the Day" on May 1, 2002.
