Deep Impact

I’ve been watching the NASA-TV coverage of Deep Impact, while also reading Susan Kitchens’s on-the-scene blog. Having both sources of information is very nice, because NASA-TV is very hard to follow at times (it was really frustrating when they were showing people celebrating and talking about the great images but not showing them). TiVo has, as always, been very handy so I could take a longer look at some of the images.

I do wish NASA-TV had a direct feed from the systems at JPL — instead, they have a camera taking a picture of images on a screen, which means that at times, the image is blocked by people wandering past (or just staying in place).
