Hi Sterling -

You know, its strange, but whenever there's dark rayed craters it always has to be "surface area exposed". No wonder as to why.

It might be nice to know what hits and when, and if our planetary probes had retrieving that data as one of their highest priorities. It might be nice to get some really good accretion models for our solar system, in particular to refine the numbers for the impact hazard here on Earth.

There's something else I'd like besides an mpeg composed of all of the images of the fragments of SL9 hitting Jupiter (preferably all dubbed to natural color), and that is revolving planet images: Mars, Mercury, Venus, etc. Just nice animated gifs, nice full screen ones. Aside from that 3-d "flight simulators" of planetary surfaces at the highest resolution possible would be nice.

And a nice reprocessed Apollo 11 landing video would be welcome as well.
