Smash a comet..... Will NASA fold?
« on: June 10, 2005, 04:41:05 PM »
Hope they don't knock it into the earth.

On July 4, the Deep Impact mission will smash a probe into Tempel 1, a potato-shaped comet discovered in 1867 and believed to be representative of most comets. The impact will carve out a stadium-sized crater and provide valuable information about a comet's interior.

So this effort looks to be a success.  So far.  

One thing that disturbs me is that tthey are doingto to see if that can discover ifthere is some life that started here on from a comet.  But  maybe by this sct they are killing that potential life.
