I did a detailed signal analysis of the Deep Impact satellite telemetry data file and posted it to my baudline blog. This file has a curved drifting random walk, modulation, self similarity, and a "surprising discovery that gets even stranger."

The data set's meta.txt file is missing. Does anyone know the base frequency?

The Deep Impact satellite has

The Deep Impact satellite has been renamed EPOXI and is in the news again with some great pictures of Comet Hartley 2:

What a strange looking comet.

Yes, I'd never expect a comet

Yes, I'd never expect a comet to look like a dog bone or drumstick. 
It still amazes me how far science and engineering has come to be able to track down a comet and take relatively close fly by shots.

I'm surprised that this

I'm surprised that this sample raster image from my Deep Impact data analysis didn't evoke any comments. I originally detected this artifact using Autocorrelation in baudline but these are whistler-like looking signals in the time domain. Yes I said time-domain. Very unusual. I have no idea how to physically generate this type of artifact.
