Every step is carefully planned and thoroughly documented in the Genesis lab at Johnson Space Center as scientists extract solar wind collectors from the Genesis spacecraft's "concentrator" and prepare them for analysis. Scientists will thoroughly analyze them to measure solar oxygen isotopic composition, the highest priority measurement objective for Genesis. The data may hold clues to increase scientists' understanding of how the solar system formed.
