Solar particle collection continues as we approach one year of flight.
We continue to remain mainly in low-speed solar wind. Last week during
some high-speed wind, the concentrator rejection grid’s voltage
autonomously went to its maximum value of 2060 V without incident.
Also, the team is developing the next stationkeeping maneuver. It
will be similar to the last maneuver, since in both Genesis passes
close to the Sun on the way to the maneuver’s starting point.
