EPOXI Live Flyby

It's on NASA TV now, pre-encounter mission control stuff.

Beaut web application, eyes on the solar sytem, need a plugin to be loaded first. Follwing flight in simulation.

6 minutes to go.

2 minutes to go.

Post closest approach, Telemetry is now back, getting high gain antenna data.

Spacecraft survived the hard bit, getting engineering data now.

Getting images now, 18hrs old, close approach images in half an hour... I'm going to bed.

Close approach image. Full images up at EPOXI site (warning, long load time, and lots of hits)
