Report for Period 27 February to 26 March 2010The reporting period covers four weeks of Rosetta mission operations. These were dedicated to further payload maintenance activities and a rehearsal of the flyby of asteroid Lutetia. The rehearsal of the asteroid flyby dynamics went very smoothly and gives good confidence in the spacecraft behaviour...

Report for Period 26 December 2009 to 15 January 2010The reporting period covers three weeks of operations for the Rosetta spacecraft. Early in the reporting period on DoY 001 the spacecraft experienced a safe mode. This was triggered by a problem on one of the subsystems' Remote Terminal Units (RTUs). The spacecraft was fully recovered and the...
