Genesis Mission Status Update
July 18, 2003

The Genesis spacecraft continues its mission collecting solar wind material expelled from the Sun. Telemetry from the Genesis spacecraft indicates that all spacecraft subsystems are reporting nominal operation.

Recent solar activity has called for the "high solar speed" collector array to be deployed 59% of the time, and the E-Array, which handles coronal mass ejections, 39% of the time. The "low solar speed" collector was unshaded the remaining 2%.

Genesis Vital Statistics:
- 710 days since launch.
- 260 days to planned completion of solar particle collection.
- 417 days to Genesis return to Earth.
