Jason Craig (BS Astronomy 1995), also on the staff at JPL, writes that he just completed work on the Stardust encounter with comet Tempel 1, the second time he's worked on it. The first time was the Deep Impact mission back when he first started at JPL. Other than that, the Jupiter mission, Juno, is going to launch this summer, and he's been involved with it off and on for two years, including an elaborate non-NASA website for it that will be launching soon. And finally, the big Rover sequel, MSL, will launch in November and could make his life very busy.
