The first results from Genesis have been finally published on the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science
Solar composition from the Genesis Discovery Mission

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

These aren't the first results published -- there've been a couple of articles in Science, for instance.

Having said that, thanks for posting the link. It seems the paper is free, at least I was able to download the whole thing, and it's a nice, brief overview.

It would be great if you had the time to do a blog Emily highlighting the significance of those findings for we armchair observers.

Agreed. The fact that the Sun's isotropic distribution appears to be similar to that of Jupiter is interesting...would like to know more, there have to be other implications that I ain't smart enough to think about! smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Yet another unfortunate typo. rolleyes.gif "Isotopic", of couse. (Man... you can't get away with squad squat on UMSF, which is part of the reason that I love it.)

EDIT: Thanks, Dan! rolleyes.gif

Genesis has made the cover of this week's Science!
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6037.cover-expansion
there are two papers on this issue:
The Oxygen Isotopic Composition of the Sun Inferred from Captured Solar Wind
A 15N-Poor Isotopic Composition for the Solar System As Shown by Genesis Solar Wind Samples
and a good resume: The Earth and the Sun
