Deep Impact progress

So, the first impactor adjustment's taken place well within expectation - and these are occurring autonomously, rather than guided by ground control. There'll apparently be another adjustment about 35 mins before impact, and a final one about 12 mins before impact, with cameras on both the mothership and the impactor crafts, in addition to the land and orbital observatories, through a global consortium of observatories.

And all this, I can watch on over 802.11b, on 512kbps on a plain phone line.

Is this not nifty? ^_^
