The explosion is just a fringe benefit

In a few hours, a NASA probe will slam an 800-plus-pound projectile into a comet at 23,000 mph, marking the first time humans ever have made contact with a dirty snowball. The impact will help scientists learn more about the universe's nature and also will offer the advantage of looking cool.
