To all: Happy 5th Anniversary to Red Colony!
To all: Happy 8th Anniversary Pathfinder and Sojourner. This mission inspired us to create RC.
To all: Deep Impact's impact probe smashed into a comet today. The mission was designed to do four things:
Comets could play a major role in terraforming, and understanding their composition could help us design better theories.
- Observe how the crater forms
- Measure the crater's depth and diameter
- Measure the composition of the interior of the crater and its ejecta
- Determine the changes in natural outgassing produced by the impact
