how can you be sure you will not alter its path around the sun?
and man, thats gotta be a hell of a good aim....i wonder if they played duck hunt when they were youngerlol...just kidding
oh, i read that...and i wasnt worried about it hitting earth in the least...i was just saying that it will alter is slightly...but things are in balance...wouldnt slight manipulation have the capability of disasterous results....even if done for our best interest...
the comet is 9 miles long .......that spacecraft will not affect it.
That name is too funny. Deep Impact...hehe...
I bet there's been folks up in NASA making jokes about it for weeks.
I hope they put Bruce Willis on that spacecraft or else I'm sure it's going terribly wrong...
And now NASA is being sued by an astrologer who claims that the resulting damage to the comet somehow "shifted her horoscope".
that is funny....
I heard about this like, 2 hours before it happened, and I didn't see it (didn't think I would) but anyways, I think the point of doing this was to see if we could divert an astroid or other object coming towards us. And it was cool to see that we could hit something traveling millions of miles an hour.
