See, I bet if we look back in ATS history this is how it started for Phage, an innocent sincere effort to educate.....lol Well done!
Say, that reminds me: I haven't seen Phage since I got out of sickbay. What's up with that?
With the fact we, you, and everyone else are on a ball flying around in a Space, in a void, we can not define, you don't know what will happen, today, tomorrow, or next week.
I give up. How many?
Know how many people have been hit by Meteors in past?
A comet like what? What is so special about C/2012 S1?
NASA isn't saying much about what is going to happen with the comet because they have never experienced a comet like this.
Not sure what you mean by "outside the solar system". Is the Oort cloud "outside the solar system"? If so, a lot of comets probably come from there.
noone can do that because nobody has experienced a comet from out of the solar system like this before.
It won't. It can't.
if it does somehow go astray and heads straight towards us
Fizzle from what? It ain't going to put on a show.
I'm hoping it does not fizzle out so we get a good show.
If at all, it will be visible after it rounds the Sun and gets far enough out so that it can be seen just before dawn. I'm going to start looking again on the 3rd but I don't have high hopes.
When will the comet be visible with the naked eye ? (if all...)
Odds are that it will survive but it won't be in the "night" sky at all, not while there's any chance of it being naked eye visible.
Will it survive the sun enough to see it in the night sky ?
Either way, John Lear once said "there is an atmosphere" on the Moon and he was thought to be crazy.
I've been keeping up with these ISON doom porn threads for a while now and, at times, I've wanted to hurl my iPad into a wall out of sheer frustration. The ignorance and blind conviction of some people on here is staggering.
Why bother clicking the doom porn threads if it bothers you that much?
