On Cometary Niftiness


Say the word, and it sounds magical. I can almost hear Carl Sagan in my head, talking comets and the cosmic mysteries of the universe.

Then I read this — a NASA solar probe photographed a comet losing its tail to a solar storm.

Maybe we should rename the comet. Call it “Comet Eeyore,” as Eeyore, too, lost his tail. 😉
