DOES ANYONE ELSE THINK THIS IS COOL?

It's probably because I grew up in Florida when the astronauts were people that everyone knew and every space launch was something that would bring the country to a stop.

Today, few of us can name one active astronaut and a lot of the very cool stuff being done in space is known by maybe a handful of people.

For instance, did you know we're about to find out whether we can nail a comet? I'm sure you've seen Deep Impact, the movie about how to stop a comet from vaporizing life as we know it. If not, rent it -- it's decent entertainment.

Well, we're about to find out (on July 4th) whether we can hit one. Of course that isn't the purpose of the mission -- or is it??
