Tempel 1 from Stardust


Stardust-NExT photographed jets of gas and particles streaming from Comet Tempel 1 during Feb 14, 2011 flyby. The raw image was taken 15 seconds before closest approach at a distance of 244 kilometers, and has been extensively enhanced by outside analysts to visibly show the jets. Annotations show the location of the jets and the crater created by a projectile hurled by NASA´ prior Deep Impact mission in 2005.
