Report for Period 19 November to 25 November 2006During the reporting period the mission operations have been conducted according to the plan. Science operations have been continued nominally after the end of the solar conjunction and the work-around for the TM burst generation in VIRTIS is effective.

Report for Period 27 October to 17 November 2006The reporting period covers three weeks of active cruise. The activities carried out during the reporting period included a Trajectory Correction Manoeuvre and preparation for the upcoming Active Checkout (PC4).

Report for Period 12 November to 18 November 2006During the reporting period the mission operations have been conducted according to the plan. Science operations have been resumed nominally after the end of the solar conjunction and the work-around for the TM burst generation in VIRTIS seems to be effective.

Report for Period 5 November to 11 November 2006During the reporting period the mission operations have been conducted according to the plan. The solar conjunction ended on 9 November. All data collected during the conjunction period were dumped, the spacecraft re-configured for routine mission and science operations were resumed in orbit #204.

Mission StatusThe Rosetta spacecraft and its payload are in excellent health and everything is set to prepare the Mars flyby on 25 February 2007.
Published: 10 November 2006
Mission StatusThe two spacecraft and the instruments are operating nominally. TC-2 has started the eclipse season and TC-1 will follow in November. The nominal mission ends at the end of December 2006 but a 2nd extension is being proposed from 1 January 2007 to October 2007 (10 months). On 10 October 2007, TC-1 will re-enter the Earth's...

The operational mission of SMART-1 ended on 3 September 2006, at 05:42:22 UT, when the New Norcia ground station in Australia suddenly lost radio contact with the spacecraft. SMART-1 ended its journey in Lacus Excellentiae, at longitude 46.2° West and latitude 34.4° South.

Mission StatusEarly June saw the celebration of 3 years in space for Mars-Express. Most of the summer has been spent on preparing for, and actually entering the power wise very challenging eclipse/aphelion season. The specially designed Survival Mode (SUMO) was tested and so far successfully used to safely sail through the longest eclipses.

Mission StatusINTEGRAL operations continue smoothly with the spacecraft, instruments and ground segment performing nominally. 142 proposals were received in response to the 4th Announcement of Opportunity (AO-4) with an over-subscription in time of around 8. In AO-3, 108 proposals were received.

Mission StatusAll four spacecraft successfully went through the long eclipse season which has just finished. A new mode of operation called "decoder only", where the on-board computer and all other sub-systems are switched off, was defined on spacecraft 1 since the batteries are now very weak. This spacecraft came out successfully of...

Mission StatusXMM-Newton operations are continuing smoothly, with the spacecraft, instruments and ground segment all performing nominally. The 6th Announcement of Observing (AO-6) opportunity for observations to be performed between May 2007 and May 2008 has opened.

The Cassini Orbiter mission continues smoothly. The planning for the extended mission beyond mid-2008 is well advanced.
Published: 10 November 2006
Mission StatusThe spacecraft status is nominal, with the High Gain Antenna (HGA) Z-axis in a fixed position. Nominal spacecraft manoeuvres (station keeping and momentum management) were performed on 6 June and 6 September.

In the final months of the ISO Active Archive Phase, activities continue to focus on the final data legacy. A new version (v10.0) of the ISO Data Archive (IDA) software was released in June. Observations can now also be searched by object type. The hierarchical classification is based on SIMBAD.

Mission StatusOn 6 October, Ulysses completed its 16th successful year in orbit. The spacecraft continues its climb to high southern latitudes with all subsystems and science instruments in good health. By the middle of November, the spacecraft will have reached 70° south solar latitude, marking the start of the third South Polar Pass.

Mission StatusThe data from the 9 September 2006 visit of the HST Optical Monitoring Program have been analyzed. Results of phase retrieval on stellar targets in ACS/HRC and WFPC2/PC in parallel give good agreement with the mean of HRC measurements over the orbit.
