I thought this was pretty cool !

The most prolific comet-hunter in history recently made its 900th discovery of a frozen visitor to the inner solar system, a chunk of ice and rock hurtling precariously close to the Sun.

To celebrate this achievement of the SOHO spacecraft, its operators have begun a contest for the public to pick the timing of the discovery of No. 1,000, officials told

The winner will receive a SolarMax DVD, a SOHO T-shirt, solar viewing glasses, and more. Prizes will be awarded for second and third place, too. SOHO is a joint project of NASA and the European Space Agency.
