6EQUJ5 WOW! signal data message the idea girl says

will this explain it’s start and stop burning of the comet ison?

quoteThe icy comet will be only about 1.6 million kilometers away from the sun’s super-hot surface during its close encounter on Thanksgiving. On Monday, it looked like it was about to die even before it got there. On Tuesday, it appeared healthy again.

“We have never seen a comet like this,” Naval Research Laboratory astrophysicist Karl Battams said during a Nasa news conference Tuesday. “It has been behaving strangely.”

Because it is so close to the sun, ISON will likely not be visible from Earth on Thursday except via a fleet of Nasa telescopes and spacecraft aimed at the comet as it gets closest to the sun at 1:37 p.m. EST( (1837 GMT), he said. And it will be a few hours before scientists know whether the comet survives.

The comet about 1 km wide is made up of loosely packed ice and dirt, essentially a dirty snowball. It is a “dinosaur bone,” from the formation of the solar system 4.5 billion years ago, Lisse said. It has been in “deep freeze” for billions of years in the Oort cloud, a vast area of comets and debris that never formed into planets that’s between 724.17 billion kilometers and 14.4 million kilometers from the sun, he said.

The comet is racing around the sun, pulled close by our star’s massive gravity, which can also break apart the dirty icy core.
