The eyes of the world were trained on the planet Jupiter as fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 tore into the Jovian atmosphere, leaving behind vast plumes of gas and impact sites larger than the Earth.

Now scientists are sifting through the data from what has been called "the greatest celestial event of the century" for clues to the origin of the Solar System, the nature of comets and asteroids, and the possible consequences of an impact on the Earth.

Comet expert Steven Edberg of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory presents the latest findings of scientists from around the globe on this event.
