Stardust Survives Comet Encounter

Stardust has survived its encounter with Wild 2 and remains in contact with Mission Control at JPL.

The spacecraft has completed a series of photos with its navigation camera and has begun to transmit them back to Earth.

It is expected that these images will all be online at http://stardust.jpl.nasa.gov
