There were two Deep Space Network (DSN) passes during the past
week. All subsystems onboard the spacecraft are performing normally.
Recorded engineering and Navigation Camera images were played backed,
and flight sequence SC016 was transmitted to the spacecraft.

The NASA / JPL Solar System Educators Program (SSEP), being supported
by the STARDUST Outreach team, commenced at JPL and will extend into
next week. Also, STARDUST supported a student outreach internship program,
explaining how to describe STARDUST to education institutions and the
general public.

comet sample return mission – please visit the STARDUST home page:
