Whoo NASA!

Nasa gave us a fantastic fireworks show with the Deep Impact Project.

This whole project was akin to trying to hit a speeding bullet with another bullet, all by remote control from the other side of the world. They carried it out with flawless precision.

Here are two views taken from the delivery vehicle:

Another step in learning about our universe. Congratulations NASA!

I also found this very impressive. They say it was visible from the Earth.
