    ARO will train both of it high precision millimeter and submillimeter radio telescopes toward Tempel 1 as it's being impacted by a 850 Lb copper projectile. It is our goal to investigate the interior chemical composition of the comet by observing the ejected material in the millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths.


Here are a few links to sites featuring information about this NASA project.
