Speaking of explosions, NASA, including the Pasadena-based Jet Propulsion Lab, has plans for the weekend that involve crashing stuff (on purpose this time) into a comet and seeing what happens. The impact is supposed to occur around 10:52 pm this Sunday, July 3. There will be pictures on TV at some point, we're sure, and there will also be a "Comet Bash" viewing party in Glendora.
