    Interesting. On issue with the description is I think he either misspoke or was was misunderstood. The article refers to a "time lapse" a few times, but that isn't what is shown: it is a real-time video - which makes the event very short.

    I wonder if we'll get any cool pictures of the scar like we did with Shoemaker-Levy 9.
