Stardust Status Report

June 7, 2002

There was one Deep Space Network traking pass in the past week and all subsystems are normal. The power subsystem's performance continues to be excellent. The power provided by the solar array increased by approximately 0.1 amps from the last communications pass as the spacecraft heads closer to the Sun. The spacecraft is currently 312 million kilometers (193 million miles) from Earth and has traveled over 2.2 billion kilometers (1.4 billion miles) around the Sun since its launch in February 1999.
