Natural Engine

Five brand new close-ups of comet 103P/Hartley 2 arrived at NASA’s Jet Propulsion 8:02 Pacific time this morning.

The Deep Impact probe (now on a mission called EPOXI) passed by comet Hartley 2 at 7:01 a.m. PDT... The probe flew through the comet’s diffuse corona at about 27,500 miles per hour and came within 435 miles of its icy, dirty core.
