    The Genesis spacecraft is heading home with it cargo of solar particles. It scheduled to fly by on
    Sept 8 and drop the Sample Return Capsule. The spacecraft will from what I know, will then head
    out into space. If there's going to be a problem with the flyby, ie the weather prevents the
    pickup of the Sample Return Capsule, they will command the Genesis spacecraft to adjust it's
    trajectory, so it orbits the earth.
