    In July the NASA mission Deep Impact (A'Hearn et al. ) demonstrated that a small near-Earth target can be hit by a ballistic projectile, but the change in the orbit of comet Tempel 1 was too small to be measured. Don Quijote is an asteroid-deflecting demonstration mission under Scientists have determined the Carancas fireball was a stony meteorite - a fragile type long thought to be ripped into pieces as it enters the Earth's atmosphere and then leaves little more than a whisper of its journey. Yet the stony meteorite that struck Peru survived its passage mostly intact before /ciencia/
