Genesis Mission Status Update
We've had a lot of low speed solar wind over the last week; everything's normal.
A regularly scheduled test of the solar wind concentrator rejection grid was conducted on 6/17, and set a record high of 2100 Volts (up from 2080 Volts). The concentrator was returned to autonomous mode at the end of the test. While the results were encouraging, the science team did not deem the improvement large enough to alter the autonomous mode's operating configuration.
