NASA will attempt to create a crash in space on July 4. They will send a probe carrying a 300 pound copper slug into the projected path of the comet Tempel 1.

If all goes well, the crash will take place just before 2 am EST on Monday, July 4. The aim of this project is to take the top layer of the comet off, revealing material that dates back to the time of planet formations.
