Stardust Status Report December 8, 2002

The Stardust flight team had one period of communication with the
spacecraft using JPL’s Deep Space Network this week. The
telemetry relayed during this period indicated the spacecraft is healthy
and all subsystems were running nominally. The interstellar dust
collection continues, but will end on December 9th, when the Sample
Return Capsule will be closed as scheduled.

sample return mission — please visit the Stardust home page:
