Nora Mainland, planning team chief for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, made a presentation on the Genesis Search for Origins project at the Vosloh Forum on Sept. 17, 2004.
"The Genesis mission was dead on accurate," said Nora Mainland, Genesis payload and navigation team leader at JPL.
It looked like it was intact," Mainland said.One possible reason being looked into was the paint used.The paint did not work in cooling down the craft and may have burned up instead.This could have heated up the power foil "parachute" and caused it to fail.
"From the color of the craft we could see that the paint had burned off of it," Mainland said."The investigation started immediately and could take six months or longer."
Overall, the mission cost $268 million and collected over 26 months of solar wind data, exceeding the 22-month goal set by JPL at the start of the mission on Aug. 8, 2001.
JPL scientists used dental tools to extract pieces of the craft while it was still in Utah and then it was flown to the Johnson Space Center.Only confetti sized particles of gold, sapphire and diamonds were left of what used to be the collector arrays, although some of the science instruments were in excellent condition, Mainland said.
