A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I thought the washing machine was due to hit tonight.
Better get your in a fast taxi Gameboy

Still not too sure about all of this skittle lark though, something nasty is bound to break off and come this way.

Bullseye! The first pics show a huge white "flash" from the impact site caused by the ejected material.

Well it shows their telemetry was never in doubt.

A lot of destruction though for a few ice cubes. If I was an alien living onboard the comet (ala Lifeforce) I would be rather pissed at being woken up by somebody chucking a fridge at me early on a Monday morning.
