"Deep Impact is on track to smash its impactor into a comet July 4, but its high-resolution camera's focus is still imperfect."

"The only disappointment so far is the High Resolution Instrument, the telescopic camera that was to provide detailed pictures of Comet Tempel 1 and the impact."

"The blurriness is still under investigation"
