Nothing new appeared it was mostly about their heroic attempts to drag some results from what was basically a failure.
The new scientist has a good account of what results were achieved.

There must have been valuable lessons learnt about how to do it the next time, even if it failed this time. Then we have the sad thing of course, NASA don't have the money to set those experiences into motion, and when they finally get it, the chance is big that those knowing what the lessons was is gone. Life huh.
