Two intriguing investigations -- One flight-proven spacecraft


EPOXI Newsletter - Jun-Jul 2010


  • Status Report
    The Deep Impact Flyby spacecraft recently flew past Earth for the last time before its flyby of Hartley2 in November. Dr. A'Hearn tells us how that went and what team members are currently working on.

  • 5th Anniversary
    July 4, 2010, marks the 5th anniversary of the Deep Impact encounter with 9P/Tempel. We can't believe that it's been 5 years! Seems just like yesterday that we were getting ready for that mission. Relive the good times by exploring the awesome images in the Deep Impact galleries and check out what we learned from Deep Impact.

  • Facebook
    Become a fan of the EPOXI Mission on Facebook! Newsletters will only be once a month, but FB postings will be more frequent. We've already got some images of 103P/Hartley posted by fans.
  • Twitter
    Not on Facebook! That's alright, you can stay up to date by following "cometexplorer" on Twitter.


  • Seeing in 3-D: Stereo Pairs
    Deep Impact got some really neat pictures of comet Tempel 1. Problem is, most people saw them flat on a screen or piece of paper. But the comet is three dimensional and interesting details emerge when you can see the comet in 3-D. Build your own stereoscope and take a look!

  • Record Attendance at JPL Open House
    EPO, engineering, and science team members talked and answered questions about EPOXI, Stardust-NExT and other JPL missions.

EPOXI E-News features information about the mission, its outreach web site, and products, services, and materials available from the EPOXI Education and Public Outreach (E/PO) team. The EPOXI mission combines two exciting science investigations in an entirely new mission that re-uses the Deep Impact spacecraft. The Extrasolar Planet Observation and Characterization (EPOCh) investigation observed stars that are known to have transiting giant planets. The Deep Impact Extended Investigation (DIXI) of comets observes comet 103P/Hartley 2 during a close flyby in November 2010. The EPOXI mission is a partnership among the University of Maryland (UMD), the California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Ball Aerospace and Technology Corp (BATC), and Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). EPOXI is a NASA Discovery mission of opportunity. See our website at
