What I dont understand is how anything could ever hit, or make contact, with the sun. With the sun being as hot as it is, wouldnt ANY object be totally decimated from the extreme heat before ever coming in contact with the sun?
Not if it was a planet the size of jupiter. A planet with sufficient mass could bust through the corona easily.
....Absolutely, but a body made of whatever it is Jupiter consists of would break apart at the speed that whatever was travelling at !

Man if that comet hit Earth it'd be all over not even time left for crying. It was definitely a comet of some sort and the resulting explosion blew a significant CME from the Sun. That means it was both VERY large, Very fragile and moving EXTREMELY fast. I think judging by all this crap on the stereo and soho we are going through a mighty dangerous patch of space soon...

No.. the comet would not be destroyed prior to hitting the sun. As you saw from the video. It's moving at an amazing speed, and while perhaps it experienced some degradation prior to impact with the sun, it would still easily make it into the sun proper.
The ejection had nothing to do with the comet at all. Not event the right angle for it.
It's just a comet, hitting the sun, as comets do. I'm just thankful we have the Hoover of the solar system (in Jupiter) and the sun itself, to pull these bodies in, so they can avoid pelting the Earth.
