I saw this today and my jaw dropped! :bigshock: Talk about close up of a comet's surface! This probe is over 10 years old, yet has got probably what looks like one hell of an HD camera on board for that age!

The images in this month's Astronomy Now are simply stunning, the level of detail captured is amazing.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

Thats amazing. Looks like a sand dune in the centre! And some small rocks strewn about. Amazing that something this small has its own gravity to hold onto those rocks.
