This document reviews the entire history of the mission in comparison to the original Planetary Protection Plan, and documents the degree of compliance with NASA's planetary protection requirements. This document is typically reported on by the NASA PPO at a meeting of the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) to inform other spacefaring nations of NASA's degree of compliance with international planetary protection requirements.
