Abstract: Deep Impact will impact the comet Tempel-1 on July 4, 2005. The impact event will be clearly visible from small telescopes on Earth, especially in the IR bands. When combined with observations taken from the Flyby spacecraft, this science data set will provide unique insight into the materials and structure within the comet, and the strength of the surface.
