We thank the Mission Design, Mission Operations, and Spacecraft Teams of the NEAR Project at the Applies Physics Laboratory of John Hopkins University and the Navigation Team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for their dedicated and successful efforts that resulted in making NEAR Shoemaker the first spacecraft to successfully orbit and land on an asteroid. The NEAR Shoemaker mission and this work were made possible by NASA. Production of this volume was part of E. Speyerer's 2001 summer internship through Northwestern University's Illinois Space Grant Program(directed by professor M. Ulmer, Department of Physics and Astronomy).
