Nasa Deep Impact Video
NASA has a video up of the Deep Impact collision (no I’m not talking about the movie starring Elijah Wood).
This movie shows Deep Impact’s approach to comet Tempel 1. It is made up of images taken by the spacecraft’s medium-resolution camera from May 1 to July 2, 3:50 Universal Time. The spacecraft detected three outbursts during this time period, on June 14, June 22 and July 2. The outbursts appear as flickers or bursts of light. The movie ends during the middle of the final outburst.
Medium resolution camera? Can’t NASA afford a high definition movie camera by now?
