This image of Eros, taken from the NEAR Shoemaker spacecraft on May 1, 2000, is among the first to be returned from "low orbit." Between May and August, the spacecraft will orbit at altitudes near 50 kilometers (31 miles) or less. This will be the prime period of activity for some of the spacecraft's science instruments. The X-ray / gamma-ray spectrometer will build up maps of chemical abundances, while the laser rangefinder measures the shape of Eros to within meters (a few feet). At the same time the magnetometer will watch for indications of Eros' magnetic field and the near-infrared spectrometer will map rock types.

The imager will take pictures of the entire surface of Eros that capture features as small as 4 meters (13 feet) across. This particular image, taken from an orbital altitude of 53 kilometers (33 miles), shows a scene about 1.8 kilometers (1.1 miles) across. Numerous craters and boulders as small as 8 meters (26 feet) across dot the landscape. The large, rectangular boulder at the upper right is 45 meters (148 feet) across.

Boulder....really? :alien51:

I commented on this picture last night. My comment has gone along with the one Ironman made????
A black-hole is not a hole it's a sphere. As will be the universe when compressed into the smallest unit it can be.

This is an example why I don't want to add anything to my anomaly thread. I tracked the view count,
and a whopping 47 people even bothered to check it out. Post it on it's own thread a couple hours ago,
a few hundred people take a look.
As for removing comments, only a mod can do that...need I say more?

The comment that I posted was just asking if it's possible to workout how big the object was by measuring the length of the shadow? The rest of the comment I made I deleted before I posted it. So unless they can see in real time what I'm typing?? and going to say (if you know what I mean) before I post there would be no reason to respond by deleting.
