Scenes from Space #14

This image of comet Tempel 1 was taken 67 seconds after Deep Impact crashed into its surface. It taken by the high-resolution camera on the mission's flyby craft. I actually did a little work on the Deep Impact mission, and had a tiny amount of code on both the impactor and the flyby spacecraft. Way cool!
