Thanks for keeping the thread updated K!

Is it just me or does it look like this thing is going to split in two?
 Quoting: KipKat


No It's not just you, I think it will become two comets ( again ? ) eventually. I don't know how many passes around the sun that will take. Thursday's NAVCAM picture shows up the two body appearance of 67P .

[link to www.esa.int]

At the moment there are two ideas as to how 67P came to look like this. Firstly it is a contact binary, two comets came together at low speed and fused. Secondly it was always one comet but the neck region had more icy material that ablated away at a faster rate.
