Illustration for article titled NASA Proudly Returns To Take Photo Of The Hole It Made

Six years ago, NASA blasted a hole into comet Tempel 1. Now it's gone back to survey the damage anew and continue observations, with its Stardust-NExT probe photographing the mess made by 2005's Deep Impact. The crater made by Deep Impact is 150 metres across, and can just about be seen in the before and after shots above. Those yellow arrows look new, too. [NASA]
