NASA Stardust Status Report February 20, 2004

The Stardust team had two periods of communications with the spacecraft in
the past week. Telemetry relayed from the spacecraft indicates
it remains in very good shape.

Abstracts of the Stardust science results from the Comet Wild 2 encounter
are now available here (Adobe Acrobat reader required):

The papers will be presented at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference
being held at League City in Texas from March 15-19, 2004.

Information on the present position and orbits of the Stardust spacecraft
and comet Wild 2 may be found on the “Where Is Stardust Right Now?” web
page located at:
