Long Range Hit....

You talk about a long range target.....Mars. Shot a golf cart size "bullet" at that planet and hit it. What fraction of MOA would that be? [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] Way to go JPL.

If you got some of the guys that hit mars together at a 1000y match they should be able to make 1 hole groups.

They would use guided projectiles though.

Did they read the wind, or take a sighter shot though? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Brent,

They took two sighters, then made a direct hit.

Talk about expensive ammo! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Long Range Hit....

You better believe they didn't "dope" the wind or take sighter shots either.

They have advanced instruments for reading all conditions and math experts that do that for them on that 105 Million mile voyage to the target.

That was unreal.
Hope we see more pics of it soon.

Later
