Genesis is sponsored by NASA's Discovery Program, which competitively selects low cost solar system exploration missions with highly focused science goals. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., manages the Genesis mission for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C. Lockheed Martin Astronautics, Denver, Colo., designed and built the spacecraft and will operate it jointly with JPL. JPL is a division of the California Institute of Technology, the home institute of the principal investigator. Major portions of the payload design and fabrication were carried out at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Genesis solar wind samples are curated at Johnson Space Center.
