crikey - i havent heard of deep impact in a while


deep impact was a mission in the mid 90's to study a comet - it comprised of a satellite and a probe which it fired into the comet to see what debris was thrown out.  As far as i am aware it was a success - but deep impact exploded years ago.

Interestingly enough the remaining bit of the deep impact module called epoxi is still flying around taking pictures of comets - its due to fly by hartley 2 in the next few days

ok - so im a nerd  ;D

Regards,

alex

Following up on Believing's link gives this from http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/deepimpact/media/spitzer-di-090705.html
[start qute]
These solid ingredients include many standard comet components, such as silicates, or sand. And like any good recipe, there are also surprise ingredients, such as clay and chemicals in seashells called carbonates. These compounds were unexpected because they are thought to require liquid water to form.

"How did clay and carbonates form in frozen comets?" asked Lisse. "We don't know, but their presence may imply that the primordial solar system was thoroughly mixed together, allowing material formed near the Sun where water is liquid, and frozen material from out by Uranus and Neptune, to be included in the same body."

Also found were chemicals never seen before in comets, such as iron-bearing compounds and aromatic hydrocarbons, found in barbecue pits and automobile exhaust on Earth.

Well, I have a hypothesis for them:  that comet, at least, is a chip off of a planet that has surface water.  Catastrophic impacts do occur.
