Abstract This data set contains Spectroscopic, Continuum and Engineering data, in the form of table files, taken during the Steins swing-by phase of the Rosetta mission by the MIRO instrument.
Description Data Set Overview = This dataset contains data generated by MIRO during the Steins Flyby mission phase of Rosetta and also data obtained during the IFP Linearity Test of Active Payload Checkout 8, which fell in the same Mission Phase. These data cover the following periods and activities: (All are in 2008, so Year is omitted from dates.) Start Time Stop Time Activity (mm-ddThh:mm) (mm-ddThh:mm) 07-06T12:30 07-06T20:30 PC8 IFP Linearity Test 09-05T13:30 09-05T18:20 Approach observations of Steins 09-05T18:27 09-05T18:50 Asteroid mode obs. of Steins 09-05T18:50 09-05T20:31 Recession observations of Steins 09-06T01:30 09-06T01:44 Asteroid mode obs. of dark sky The three Steins observations have separate files in the DATA/SPECTROSCOPIC directory, but the CONTINUUM files are not separated since Asteroid Mode has no special effect on contimuum data. Note that a Disable Science command was issued at 09-05T23:40, in order to stop generating uninteresting data while keeping the instrument on (and hence stable) for the following dark-sky observation. However, because of the backlog of data due to the asteroid-mode observation, the time at which the science data cease is over 3 hours before that command.

The spacecraft carries a Rosetta Lander, named Philae, to the nucleus and deploys it onto its surface. A brief description of the mission and its objectives can be found in the Rosetta Science Management Plan [RO-EST-PL-0001] and in papers [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the Consolidated Report on Mission Analysis [RO-ESC-RP-5500], the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-...
