There were two Deep Space Network tracking passes in the past week,
and all subsystems are normal. Stardust is currently 2.47 AU (230 million
miles) from the Sun.

The Stardust Outreach team provided printed and video educator materials
to the Challenger Center, Houston Museum of Natural Sciences, the Young
Astronauts Club, the Hawaii Educators Conference, and Ambassadors Program
participants. Film Oasis, Inc. completed its show “Science on the Edge,”
featuring Stardust, which is slated to air on the Discovery Channel next
March. In support of the Ambassador Program Board, 35 applicants were reviewed.
