Stardust and Deep Impact - cometary adventures long before Rosetta and Philae

Abstract
Following the reports from the comet landing last week it is easy to get the impression that this is the first ever visit to a comet.
I will briefly talk about Stardust, a sample-return mission to comet Wild 2, and Deep Impact, which carried an impactor probe to comet Tempel 1. How where these missions carried out and which are the main science results.
