    Wow :) So cool.

    Did you hear about the new thing their doing? Something about putting a hole in a meteor (?) to analyze it. I guess itll land on July 4th of this year.

    It reminds me of a movie I cant think of the name for.

    They say that if things go well they'll have those pictures converted to colour within a couple of days. If things don't go to plan, it'll be a couple of weeks.

    Maybe they should have used a red filter?

    For a little time there, I kept referring to that project as Deep Throat...-_- what can I say, it's almost the same thing! It'll be pretty cool to see what it all looks like when they get it there.

    photong, you must be thinking of Armageddon with Bruce Willis, where they have to drill a hole into the asteroid, use a nuke, yadda yadda save the world save the girl. Okay, I shouldn't be so critical, I actually liked it when it came out. If that's not it, I don't know which one you mean...

    It's "Deep Impact" which is also the name for the mission I believe.
