To Space and Beyond

I can just imagine the Arab media now: “Not content with collaborating to spread destruction on this world, the US and Israel have now extended their destructive influence to beyond this world.”

Israeli astronomers at the Wise Observatory in Mitzpe Ramon supplied the US Monday with useful data on Deep Impact, the first-ever man-made comet collision.

 

Deep Impact was carried out on July 4 to mark American Independence Day, and very few places on Earth were positioned to view the collision – which created a huge crater – at night, the only time it was visible.

 

Observatory director Dr. Noah Brosch and an expert at Tel Aviv University’s department of astronomy and astrophysics told the Jerusalem Post that Israel’s was the only observatory from Australia to Western Europe to supply the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration with quality data. “We are at the right longitude to provide data,” Brosch explained. “China was a partner, but there was rain and they couldn’t see anything. We, of course, have clear skies over Mitzpe Ramon at this time of year.”
