Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:The cyro-cooler for eMAS lost power early in the flight and subsequent attempts to restart were unsuccessful so an early RTB was called. Approx 600 gal of fuel were dumped to get within landing weight. All other science sensors worked well and AirMSPI was able to get 13 minutes of data over Mono Lake and pitch and roll maneuvers were performed for SSFR.
