Not really.
The fragments will follow the original orbit. Gradually drifting apart.


I see. The sun gave birth to "Little Isons" today.

I would say so.. it reaches around .2 or .3 the speed of light when its in the sling shot. The further it is/gets the slower it goes.

Apparently the tail survives, but the nucleus may have been destroyed. Possibly a few fragments being lit up, but only time will tell.

Update for 4:10 p.m. ET Nov. 28: The comet may have fizzled, but scientists say sun-watching satellites are still seeing the dust left over from ISON swing around in a gravitational arc as it dissipates. "Dust continues to move around the orbit, just as it should," Pesnell told NBC News. The arc is visible in imagery from NASA's STEREO and SOHO satellites.

What's left of it (dust and bits) is continuing on the original orbit.
