NASA's Deep Impact

NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft traveled about 268 million miles of deep space in 172 days to reach out and touch comet Tempel 1. Running on VxWorks, Deep Impact successfully completed an intended hyper-speed collision, the first of its kind, with the spacefaring iceberg. It used an updated version of the AutoNav software that operated on Deep Space 1. Images and videos courtesy of NASA and NASA/JPL
