Cheers And Job Well Done From Europe On Deep Impact Mission
Leaders of the nation's richest and most powerful nations may be
having some trouble getting along at the G8 Summit in Europe this
week, but the same certainly can't be said about their space
ESA's Director of Science, Professor David Southwood, offered
his congratulations Wednesday to NASA's Deep Impact team, on a
successful mission to Comet 9P/Tempel-1.
The Deep Impact spacecraft has completed its first steps in
exploring a comet's interior by creating a crater with an impactor
spacecraft, allowing the mother spacecraft to look deep inside the
comet during a fly-by immediately afterwards.
"The Deep Impact mission brought the world together in an
excellent opportunity make a new step into the advancement of
cometary science," said Prof. Southwood.
"The success of the Deep Impact mission will allowing us to use
many space and ground observatories to look for the first time
right inside a comet. As ESA, we are proud to be contributing to
this campaign with some of our best sky-watchers -- our Rosetta
comet-chaser spacecraft, the XMM-Newton X-ray observatory, as well
as Hubble Space Telescope ( which we share with NASA ) -- and with
ESA's Optical Ground Station in the Canary Islands. The results are
going to be a terrific help in planning Rosetta's comet landing a
decade from now."
