Re: ISON BREAKS IN TWO PARTS!!!!
So when will it be closest to earth?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11222564


nobody will know its new orbit and trajectory until
it emerges from the far side, and even then there may
not even be time enough...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 46805758


Nonsense...here's the facts, Bub-

When Comet ISON reaches its closest approach to us, on December 26th, 2013, it's going to be over 63 million kilometres away, both above us and ahead of us in our orbit at that time. By the time Earth reaches the point where we're passing through the plane of ISON's orbit, on January 16th, 2014, the comet will be roughly halfway between the orbits of Earth and Mars.
So, there's no way that Comet ISON is going to be a danger to us, here on Earth.

 Quoting: Hugh M Eye



Hold on a sec... Is there a CME directed at ISON right now? Someone in another thread was arguing about how CME's weren't affecting ISON as it has already been hit by 10 or so.

So if ISON keeps getting hit by CME's, wouldn't that suggest it is interacting with the sun in some way, directing CME's toward it? Now, after ISON passes around the sun and some time before it passes in front of earth, won't ISON generally be between sun and earth? That would put us in the line of fire for CME's.

Am I missing something here? That would appear to me to be the danger ISON poses to earth. If its true that ISON has been hit by several CME's in its short interlude into our system, it would appear the sun is taking pot shots at the comet. And it looks like there have been a few pretty big ones of late.

Just my observation.

Re: ISON BREAKS IN TWO PARTS!!!!
well known that often, dust and gas form two distinct tails, pointing in slightly different directions. This is what can be observed from the comet ISON, the dust that is heavier, remains behind with respect to the nucleus and form, often, a kinked tail which is maintained on the orbit of comet. While the gas that is more sensitive to the solar wind, forming a tail straight in the direction opposite to the Sun, along the lines of the magnetic field rather than the local orbital trajectories.

Whatever Ford Perfect. Actually I don't care what you think because it really doesn't matter.

I tried to tell you, I wasn't that Denise but if you still want to insist go right ahead.

It is obvious you are wanting to take the focus off the picture from ISON telescope to have people doubt it. I understand the way that game is played here.

Cheers!

Really, then why did it break apart? Seems to me causality has to come into play. Also since there are reports that one of the parts is slowing some external force is clearly at work. I am not say this means doom. I am only pointing out the obvious.
 Quoting: Anu, father of Enki



Just because there is no external force doesn't mean internal forces aren't at play, two systems here. The center of mass will remain constant in the event ISON breaks itself apart, that is until each piece is then subject to the massive pull of the sun which will then completely change each segments trajectory.

If ISON, or any comet, broke apart on its own and had no sun or planet to be gravitationally inclined towards then it's segments would forever drift away from each other but the center of mass would remain constant.

If you have a 2Kg object break in half and its pieces fly off in opposing directions, and 1Kg reaches 100Km away from the other 1Kg then the center of mass for that system is at the 50Km mark in BETWEEN them; center of mass is no where near any of the pieces but where the WHOLE object WOULD have been.

To put it plainly, your wrong ac.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16981841


No, sir, I'm certain he is quite correct. The pieces will follow the same orbital path not 'fly off in opposing directions'.



[link to www.youtube.com]
 Quoting: Hugh M Eye


You are correct hugh - straight line. the other poster with his analogy does not have ghis 2kg object flying through space at unbelievable speeds, being pulled by the gravity of the sun. If ison had dynamite at its heart and it blew in a massive fireball of power, it still wouldnt move anywahere but the path it is already on!
 Quoting: green_girl


You guys clearly don't seem to understand the mechanics behind trajectories.

Anyways, What if it were to break after perihelion? It has nearly 100 million miles to travel before it would reach earth and any sort of internal explosion would cause segments to drift apart, plain and simple!

Even if a small percentage of the comet were to break off after perihelion and only deviate by even 10-20° there is a GOOD chance it would hit earth seeing as the comet is already poised to come within 40 million miles of earth AND it has nearly 100 million miles of travel time to deviate.

The Earth needs a magnetosphere to protect itself from solar stuff, does dirty snowballs have some kind of protection?

Thread: Comet Lovejoy survives perihelion!
Were you not around for Comet Lovejoy?
 Quoting: Intruth



why did it hit the sun?

leave an impact crater?

???????


THIS COMET IS BRIGHTER THAN ISON: Comet ISON is getting all the press, but another comet is outshining the media-favorite by nearly an order of magnitude. Comet Lovejoy (C/2013 R1) is almost 10 times brighter than Comet ISON as it passes just outside the orbit of Earth in mid-November: 3D orbit. Rolando Ligustri took this picture of Comet Lovejoy on November 12th using a remotely-controlled telescope in New Mexico:

Wrong comet Lovejoy. About 2 years ago a comet grazed the Sun at a very close distance. It was not expected to survive. It came out the other side brighter and got its tail back shortly after leaving many astonished at how a dirty snowball can withstand those temps.

I was just outside sitting there looking up at the sky... and a little voice in inside said part of it is going to hit the Sun....then I come in here and read this. it gave me the chills and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up....crazy.... what would happen is it really did hit the Sun I ask myself?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward

My personal opinion is, and I stress this is just my opinion, that it would depend on exactly what type of energy Ison is. The sun is not like a planet that there would be an impact but certain energies could fuck the sun to hell and back.

Some of you are assuming it's a dirty snowball.

Actually, I dont discount people who say it will hit the Sun. Supposedly Mars changed its orbit. Just a slight change from that distance can change if or if not hits the Sun.

It explains:

It will have the color of copper or bronze.

Like a football with huge rivets at the seams.

A super-size twin asteroid hitting the sun in a vital spot (hidden blind spot).

Not too much. Like dropping a grain of sand at the beach. Actually, i dont think any comet has ever touched the sun. They all evaporate in its atmosphere long before they reach the surface.

Nothing just evaporates to become nothing or empty. Every single thing that exists is energy and if it disappears than it either changed state or became part of something.

Just to go a bit deeper with this. when we (humans) take a pill, it absorbs itself in the virus that it is designed to fight and destroys it from within. Ison could be a bitter pill to swallow. I don't know this as fact but I do see how things functions

I never said it turns into nothing, and I do understand the process of matter converting to energy.
