T-plus two years since launch! 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 lower than usual array activity. The "high solar speed" collector array to be deployed 79% of the time, and the E-Array, which handles coronal mass ejections, was unshaded for the remaining 21% of the time.
