Stardust Status Report

July 26, 2002

There were two Deep Space Network passes this past week and all subsystems are normal. Thursday's early morning communications track was an NSP (Network Simplication Project) radio metric engineering test at Goldstone, California. The Navigation team had to condition their data first, but the "best efforts" telemetry data appears to be good.

The internal Comet Wild 2 Fault Tree Review identified and analyzed over 230 potential events.The review also showed areas where additional analysis will be required but no showstoppers were identified. Work on the analysis continues.

For more information on the Stardust mission - the first ever comet sample return mission - please visit the Stardust home page:
