STARDUST Status Report

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