To all the Elenin Debunkers and Sceptics, may I ask, how exactly did this 4 km diameter Comet just "break up" in deep space?
I'm guessing it felt the need to "self-destruct"?
Hundreds of Comets pass close to the Sun every year without "melting".
For example, Comet Encke
(4.8km in diameter) is slightly bigger than Comet Elenin (4 km in diameter)
and it gets much closer to the sun during its perihelion - 0.3302 AU. It hasn't "melted" or "self destructed" since its discovery date in 1786.
So naturally, it begs the question: Why did Comet Elenin have to be the exception?
Its surface area is MASSIVE the fact it is 4 km in diameter, and it was only 0.482 AU from the Sun - a large enough distance to escape the threat of
Until these scientists can give me a reasonable explanation, Comet Elenin is still relevant and kicking in my books.
