About the
Kuiper Airborne Observatory's Shoemaker-Levy 9 Studies.


              The impact of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 into the planet Jupiter between July 17 and July 22, 1994 was of great interest to astronomers worldwide. The KAO travelled to Australia to view particular collisions at wavelengths inaccessible to ground-based telescopes. Highlights and results from the deployment, including a mission overview and a travelogue written by the Mission Manager, are available for review. NASA Ames also produced a press release describing this mission. All are linked below.
