Here is a tiny URL link - http://tinyurl.com/6quhfd - to an October 1977 NASA document with the ISEE A, B, and C press kit on pages 18 to 48.

Hi Rob!

The link is: ADDRESS BY NASA ADMINISTRATOR DAN GOLDIN TO KENNEDY SPACE CENTER EMPLOYEES - JANUARY 27,1995

Wow! How did that happen? A TinyURL error? I'll check my source data on my home computer and post the correct link, I hope.

Rob

The original is "NASA-NEWS-RELEASE-77-213; P77-10213" It appears that the IT mavens at NASA have switched file numbers. I have the edited file downloaded and in hand, so if someone could "host" the ISEE Press Kit, I'd appreciate it. Left me know!

I broke the ISEE 1977 Press Kit into two parts to post them here.

My girlfriend scanned me some, 15 to 20 pictures from the original photos taken back way back when, before I was born! lol.

They are in my email now and I will post them up when I get time later.


Carlos, I know that the holidays are almost here, but will you have any time soon to post more photos of ICE, the plucky old space probe?

I wonder what would be the point of turning off the radio transmitter in the first place. If ICE can be used again (and I remember reading about this back in the pages of Odyssey [does anyone remember that magazine?] back when I was a teenager) then I wonder if there are other spaceprobes out there that could be used again save a deactivated transmitter.

A new mission is being studied - http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2009DDA....40.1302D


This would be a great mission...the flyby would occur in 2018, around the same time as Comet Wirtanen comes within 7 million kilometers (.08 AU - for comparison, the close flyby of Comet Hyakutake in 1996 was .1 AU) of earth, likely becoming visible to the unaided eye and allowing observatories on earth and in earth orbit to image the comet while ICE takes in situ data. I hope NASA isn't short-sighted on this one. I imagine this mission would be quite cheap, and would greatly enhance science gained in it's close approach. Because of upcoming flybys of Jupiter, Wirtanen will not come very close to earth again (at least while any of us are alive, save if some technology allows our talking heads to be kept alive in a pickle jar or something). If this comet sounds familiar, it was Rosetta's original target.

Has there been any more on this possibility? I was re-reading Emily's blog today, and I wondered if the Mission of Opportunity was going ahead or not. The last I heard (some time in the autumn) was that Robert Farquhar was pushing hard for it, but I've seen nothing anywhere about it since. It seems too good an opportunity to pass up - a mere $25 million of infrastructural investment gets you a comet flyby! (No nice pictures, I know, but still...)

Where did you hear the $25 million figure? BTW, it is Farquhar. It is briefly mentioned here. The fact that it would be .08 AU from earth at the time means that there would indeed be pretty pictures - just not from ICE itself.

it is mentioned in Farquhar's bio "fifty years on the space frontiers" (p. 407):

I've estimated the total cost for the ICE extended mission to be somewhere between $20 to $25 million over a six-year period (2013-18)

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.
