What happend to this thing? I know they retired it in 2001, but is it leaving the Solar System like the Pioneer & Voyager probes, or is it now in a heliocentric orbit?
- Heliocentric, according to this rather sad little website. The Singing Badger 02:10, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
Why does it have this odd name?
Near the end of the Introduction, it is stated that Deep Space 1 took "stunning images" of comet Borrelly and asteroid Braile on its flyby of said objects. Did the author click on those links? Both pictures that Deep Space 1 took, while helpful and impressive to astronomers, are just blurs to laypeople. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:46, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
When attempting to visit Deep Space 1's official JPL website, I'm unfortunately getting a 403-Forbidden and the information that I "don't have permission to access /ds1/ on this server". While boldly assuming others would end up with the same error: What's the matter? Trouble only temporary? URL wrong or outdated? Does the site even still exist? If not, we'd better follow suit, remove the link, which I'm not doing right away since I'm unsure whether something's simply out of kilter here. Seem's somewhat hard to believe that JPL themselves would not keep any information or appreciation concerning DS1 online?! Even though it's been well over 13 years ago.. I mean this mission really broke new grounds back then. Zero Thrust (talk) 07:12, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
