last image taken today

According to the Stardust website, the spacecraft has continued taking navigational camera images of Tempel 1 since last Monday’s flyby. But “This will end with a Navcam calibration that will take place [today]. This will be the end of the official Tempel 1 encounter activities. Planning is under way for the decommissioning of the spacecraft.” Thanks, Stardust, for a job so well done!Credit: NASA, JPL ….
