Genesis Mission Status Update

The spacecraft continues to collect solar wind samples. Coronal mass ejections, fast solar wind/coronal holes, and slow solar wind regimes were all observed and the appropriate arrays were deployed to collect samples from each type of solar wind.

The navigation team issued the final reconstruction report on station keeping maneuver 2A, which was done on May 22. The total change achieved (0.7926 meters per second) was just 0.09 percent less than the change planned.

A 1-hour diagnostic test was performed this week on the Genesis ion monitor. Los Alamos National Laboratory, which supplied the monitor, will analyze the data.
