Comet ISON is in danger of disintegration

Comet ISON is in danger of disintegration according to new observational data conducted by the Group of Computational Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Antioquia, Colombia.

Optical observations have shown unexpected behaviour in the “light curve” of ISON, which has exhibited an almost constant brightness for nine months, unprecedented in cometary astronomy. It’s been predicted through the comparison of previously defunct comets that ISON has entered a “danger zone”.

It faces a potentially perilous future as it approaches the inner solar system and must survive estimated temperatures of 2,700°C.
