Rosetta-Orbiter MIRO Cruise 2 & 9P/Tempel 1 Calibrated Data

This data set has been superseded. Go here for the current version.


Abstract: This data set contains Spectroscopic and Continuum data taken by the Microwave Instrument for the Rosetta Orbiter (MIRO) during the second cruise phase of the mission. The data consist primarily of observations of comet 9P/Tempel 1 before, during and after the planned collision of the Deep Impact mission impactor spacecraft with that comet in July 2005. These data have been calibrated to antenna temperatures and are presented as a series of binary table files.
