Stardust Status Report

November 15, 2002

Stardust successfully completed playback of images this week from its flyby of asteroid Annefrank the previous week. The success of the flyby was reported by many news publications and newscasts around the world.

The spacecraft is operating in good health. Two periods of radio contact through antennas of the Deep Space Network provided communications with the flight team.

Stardust personnel participated at a "lessons-learned" meeting on November 11 and 12 and discussed activities that went well during the Annefrank flyby and activities that could be improved for the primary encounter with Comet Wild 2 in 2004.
