no pix huh?

An ambitious one-day mission to observe the potentially dazzling Comet ISON with a telescope dangling from a colossal NASA balloon this weekend has failed due to a mechanical glitch, NASA officials say.

The mission, called the Balloon Rapid Response for ISON (BRRISON), lifted off from Fort Sumner, N.M., on Saturday (Sept. 28) in a bid to make telescope observations of Comet ISON — which some scientists have dubbed as a potential "comet of the century" if brightens on its way into the inner solar system. The telescope-toting balloon aimed to observe the comet from the Earth's upper atmosphere in infrared and ultraviolet/visible wavelengths of light.

But roughly two and a half hours after the BRRISON balloon's launch, the 0.8-meter telescope on its science gondola platform returned to a stowed position too rapidly. That motion drove the telescope past an internal latch, causing it to jam, mission officials said. [Comet ISON In 2013: 8 Essential Facts]

Considering all the other rubbish on here amazed this has not got more attention .. First deep impact probe glitch then balloon telescope glitch .. No ison photos .. Now Hubble not able to produce ison photos ..

Come on ! this is odd!

NASA has all the photos and scientific data that it needs.

They just aren't sharing it with us "little people".

They don't want us to worry our pretty little heads, so they are telling us that "Comet" ISON is just a dirty little snowball, when the truth is likely far more serious.

Is every damn camera these "experts in space" have, malfunctioning?.. WTF.. these are the people we have in charge of space exploration and they cant even get a damn camera to work..

seriously is anyone believing this BS... I would believe glitches in one or maybe two.. but all their damn cameras glitching... bullshit..
