ISEE-3 Engines Fired (Update)
Keith’s 2 July note: We just fired the engines on ISEE-3 to perform a spin-up burn. Preliminary results confirm the burn and a change in rotation. The spin rate was originally 19.16 rpm. It is now at 19.76 rpm. The original mission specifications call for 19.75 +/- 0.2 rpm – so we are exactly where we wanted to be.
Keith’s 7 July update: We are planning to try and do our Trajectory Correction Maneuver burn tomorrow. Arecibo window extends from 12:42pm – 3:29pm EDT. Follow along at @ISEE3Reboot
