NASA Declares End of Deep Impact Comet Mission
According to new report, NASA declared last week that the mission to research on comet has been stopped. This mission was set by the professor at the University of Maryland.
A spacecraft was sent a long year back in order to study and collect the details of the comet.
Comets are small or large pieces of objects which are formed by the creation of Earth and other planets.
The mission was a great success as it had gathered all the details of the comets, the small icy bodies.
The College Park campus said that the scientists had really worked hard in order to make their imagination into reality. They aimed to find as much for this deep impact mission, which could be beyond the thoughts of normal people.
But, this drop of the spacecraft is a "big loss" for the scientists at the University of Maryland.
Jessica Sunshine, prof. of the Maryland astronomy, said that losing this mission is just like losing an old friend.
Mike A'Hearn, principal investigator at the University of Maryland, said that he feels "proud of the many contributions", they had achieved in order to gather the information of the comets.
He added that he was "saddened" with the end of this spacecraft mission.
