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...
