There was one Deep Space Network tracking pass on Tuesday, June 11, and all subsystems are performing normally. The power subsystem's performance continues to be excellent.

The spacecraft is currently 298 million kilometers (182 million miles) from Earth and has traveled over 2.2 billion kilometers (1.4 billion miles) around the Sun since its launch in February 1999. In 567 days, Stardust will encounter Comet Wild 2 in January 2004.
