Rendezvous with a Comet (10am - 12pm & 12pm - 2pm)
Team members work as scientists and engineers heading to rendezvous with a comet as part of the continued study of our Solar System. Rendezvous missions are critical in helping scientists verify and better understand data collected by other missions currently occurring, such as STARDUST and its capture of material from the coma of Comet Wild-2 in 2004 and the return of that material to Earth in 2006. Actual samples provided by STARDUST establish baseline data on comets that are used for future explorations.
