Description

This data set contains trajectory information for the spacecraft encounter with Comet Giacobini-Zinner, from the "SAVE TAPE" produced by the JPL Navigation Section after the encounter. The data are in ASCII characters, with one value per hour for each of 114 parameters. The spacecraft location and velocity vector components are given in geocentric and heliocentric coordinates, for earth true equator of date and earth true orbit of date systems, plus body-fixed coordinates for earth, Giacobini-Zinner, and Venus. Various angles relative to these and other bodies are also given.
