Stardust and Comet Temple 1, Again (February 14).

The revamped Stardust spacecraft will meet up with comet Temple 1, on 14th February (Valentines day) in some time zones (it's not clear, but it may be the morning of the 15th here is Australia). The spacecraft will revisits the comet six years after Deep Impact visited the comet and dropped a projectile on it. This visit will show how the comet has evolved since then and get a look at the Deep Impact crater.

Don't know if they will broadcast it live though.
