Description At Ball Aerospace in Boulder, Colo., the infrared (IR) spectrometer for the Deep Impact flyby spacecraft is inspected in the instrument assembly area in the Fisher Assembly building clean room. Deep Impact will probe beneath the surface of Comet Tempel 1 on July 4, 2005, when the comet is 83 million miles from Earth, and reveal the secrets of its interior. After releasing a 3- by 3-foot projectile to crash onto the surface, Deep Impact’s flyby spacecraft will collect pictures and data of how the crater forms, measuring the crater’s depth and diameter, as well as the composition of the interior of the crater and any material thrown out, and determining the changes in natural outgassing produced by the impact. The spectrometer is part of the High Resolution Instrument in the spacecraft. This imager will be aimed at the ejected matter as the crater forms, and an infrared "fingerprint" of the material from inside of the comet's nucleus will be taken. It will send the data back to Earth through the antennas of the Deep Space Network. Deep Impact is a NASA Discovery mission. Launch of Deep Impact is scheduled for Jan. 12 from Launch Pad 17-B, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.
