Heavenly Body of the Week: The Comet known Simply as 67-P

This week's Heavenly Body is the rather boringly named comet, known simply as 67-P. Seriously NASA, I know you can come up with better names than this. Howzabout Comet Sinister or Grey Gardens, or maybe just Bob. Anyhoo, I guess, for now, 67-P it is. But the reason good ole 67-P is our Heavenly Body of the Week, is that NASA landed a probe on the bitch. That's right, we landed a spacecraft onto a speeding comet. Cool. Cool cool cool. Oh, and in case you wanted to get an idea of the size of our buddy 67-P, here is a handy pic of the comet, as if it sat in downtown Manhattan.


That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.

  2. 7 of 9 must have named it and I actually thought it was bigger-nice way to see the comet compared to NYC

  3. Fox - Forget the names, I'm still pissed at NASA for demoting poor Pluto!

    B - I still say it's pretty freakin' big. Just imagine if it actually landed at that spot. That would suck big time...to put it mildly.

    Thanx for stopping by kids. See ya 'round the web.
