Stardust Status Report

December 6, 2002

The Stardust flight team had one period of communication with the spacecraft using JPL's Deep Space Network this week. The telemetry relayed during this period indicated the spacecraft is healthy and all subsystems were running nominally. The interstellar dust collection continues, but will end on December 9th, when the Sample Return Capsule will be closed as scheduled.
