:: quarks and quazars :: Deep Impact

+ I guess I have been so wrapped up in ad news that I totally missed this until today.
NASA’s Deep Impact mission is slated to crash an 820-pound (371-kilogram) Impactor probe into Comet Tempel 1 and record the event via a Flyby mothership, orbital observatories like the Hubble and Spitzer space telescope, and a myriad of ground-based telescopes from around the world. The impact is expected to take place at 1:52 a.m. EDT (0552 GMT) on July 4th.
Wow. And fortunately for Hollywood, it's unmanned so they don't have to worry about really losing Bruce Willis or Ben Affleck on the mission. ;-) has a good list of live and nearly live broadcasts you can watch via the web. Some have commentary. Others are just images. And others are live feeds.

There's also a ton of info here.
