At least it's died a peaceful death, and didn't linger like Spirit.

After nine years of interstellar interplanetary investigations, the mission of NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft has come to an end.

I stopped there.  There's only one current interstellar probe.

If they can't get the foundations right, why trust them with the rest. Time to find a better source.

So... They're not going to release the pictures that show multiple UFOs heading for earth?

You know, the "last pics" that were transmitted by Deep Impact?

Likewise.  Of course, it's not going to smack into Pluto spectacularly (I don't think NASA even has the budget to crash a helicopter into Pluto)... it's gonna keep on keeping on, right past it, and past whatever else looks interesting out there.  The folks determining exactly what else  doeslook interesting out there have been spending a fair amount of time at my work site, so I have a "My Other Vehicle is On its Way to Pluto" bumper sticker on my car.

I'll miss Deep Impact or DIXI or whatever the final name was, though.  I did technical support for an outreach event on Maui through the impact, and then supported spectroscopy of it the next few nights.  I think I know where at least one mission pin is at home, and once I go through some boxes, I'll probably find more swag (foldable cardboard models of it from Ball Aerospace, etc.)

I can't say I'm all that sad, we squeezed every ounce of science we could out of this mission after its primary mission ended in 2005. A successful mission, now to do something else and keeping pushing the boundaries of what is possible so we can further our understanding of the solar system and our place in it.
