Genesis spacecraft illustration (NASA) NASA's Genesis spacecraft is working well and is on course after performing a short maneuver Friday, project officials said. Genesis, launched Wednesday afternoon from Cape Canaveral, tweaked its orbit Friday by firing its thrusters for 53.5 seconds. The maneuver put the spacecraft on course to reach the Earth-Sun L1 Lagrange point in November. All spacecraft systems are performing well, according to a status report released Friday. Genesis will spend more than two years at the L1 point collecting samples of the solar wind that will be returned to Earth for study in 2004.
