Deep Impact Crater

Hey Space Placers,

Here is the Stardust-NExT photo of the Deep Impact crater (see my earlier posts). The Stardust photo is on the right while the Deep Impact photo is on the left. The close up images detected many changes on the comet and a significant amount of erosion from the Sun's heating. The close up images will be studied in detail to document the changes. I expect we will see more in the months to come.
