Stardust DSE 81P/Wild 2 Dynamic Science Data


Abstract: This data set contains data from the Dynamic Science Experiment conducted during the Stardust encounter with comet Wild 2 on January 2, 2004. The data in this archive are organized into two tables in standard PDS format. The first of these tables provides high rate attitude control system (ACS) data spanning 40 minutes around closest approach while the second table provides attitude control thruster firing information (aka ``small forces'') spanning 3 hours around closest approach.
