There are a ton of photos of that impact it's really sweet

I work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratoryout in Pasadena, so it was pretty amazing to see that experiment work. It's been the largest thing to happen here since the rovers landed on Mars.

Glad to see people are enjoying it, It's not easy to hit a comet going that fast, you need to have the direct route perfectly done, not to mention that you aren't working in real time, it took several minutes to send any signals to Deep Imapct, which just made things harder.
