during the rush too control,, there is one , image out there somewhere ,,which shows a perfect sphere,, which was called a bad pixel,, ,, but a perfect sphere inner core would make , logical sence,, in the vacumn of "outer-space",,
maybe that is what they don't want too accept???
can you explain what you mean? THey did not accept what ? and why wouldnt they show it?
Here you go, more oval egg than round sphere

Some of us are lurking, but with 5 threads going on ison. Its hard to keep up with whats facted or whats fiction. But none the less im really interested.
UPDATE 2 (Nov. 29 at 02:30 UTC): This beastie continues to surprise. This SOHO image, from 00:18 UTC on Nov. 29, sure looks like something survived intact. At this point all I can say is the same thing I've been saying all along: predicting comets is like predicting cats. Good luck with that. For those keeping score at home, it got bright, then it faded, then it got all smeared out, then it came around the Sun smeared out, and then it seemed to get its act together again. At this point, I refuse to make any further conclusions about this comet; it seems eager to confuse. I've been hearing from comet specialists who are just as baffled... which is fantastic! If we knew what was going on, there'd be nothing more to learn.
The tail effects took time to really see properly since the reduction in the nucleus mass and speed was far greater than expected.
EDIT: Delaying the images or updates could potentially be a safety net, like a pause on live tv so they can edit out accidents (aka swearing) in case anything "unexpected" happened, that is to say that somthing other than breaking up, impacting or slinging as first projected.edit on 30-11-2013 by Biigs because: (no reason given)

This won't be a conversation.
If you think you know something then say it.
I'm not playing your #ing games.
I hope not. If the orbit changed significantly, that would mean it lost too much mass and thus all we are seeing is dispersing rubble. If what emerged is in the same basic orbit, then the comet was massive enough and cohesive enough to survive, and therefor might still put on a show.
you'd be less obfuscatory if you maybe then show where you coherently explained why we don't see the missing footage. Your explanation of why we don't see anything was the link and quote where they said they were going "off-point", but when asked why they did that in the first place you got all defensive like I had just asked something unreasonable. I'm only trying to clarify the situation and you are getting vague with the short one-liners. So I will give you another opportunity to be less obfuscatory- why don't we see perihelion on any of the footage?

you said the reason why we didn't see perihelion was because they went "off-point".
That is a false statement.

Wow good eye.
Have you shared this with any one besides ATS?
I'm sure there are many that would be interested in this.
Have you checked it out on 4096x4096?
