Scientists: Comet ISON likely didn’t survive sun encounter
AP: Scientists say Comet ISON likely didn’t survive its close encounter with the sun.
Images from NASA spacecraft showed Comet ISON approaching for its slingshot around the sun on Thursday, but nothing coming out on the other side.
In a Google+ hangout, U.S. Navy solar researcher Karl Battams said “ISON probably hasn’t survived this journey.”
Phil Plait, an astronomer who runs the “Bad Astronomy” blog, agreed, saying “I don’t think the comet made it.”
