bmwericus: Stuff like THIS is why I am such a supporter of our space programs, all of them.The amount of brain sweat needed to do this just makes me swell with pride that we have the money, the skill and the talents to do something this cool - think about it - we are going to orbit around a ball of ice that is in an elliptical orbit around the sun....AND send back pictures and possibly land a probe? Really, is this great or what?
Tobin_Lam: The picture from yesterday is pretty farking awesome.
Grahor: I don't want to say it's aliens, but, really, people, haven't you fantasized, just for a second, that this strange piece of rubble is a part of some technology?... Have you no soul? :)
Xxplosiv: I hypostulate that at the apex of its traversal through its climax of eccentrical orbital inclination, its overall momentum reduces to zero as it was before being knocked off of its high oort-horse and into whatever tangle left it just out of the standard oort-type of orbital pattern with whatever natural eccentricity its supposed to have.This would mean that the oort cloud is akin to antarctica of space, and comets are basically fragments of an ice shelf mesa that basks in slightly warmer water 'plains' or flat jets warmed by a network of collisions in a disk pattern, before finding ground currents and complete gravitational body unraveling towards our tropical water oasis.
RoomFullOfMonkeys: Looks like a boot to me.
