Plucky comet survives sundive

For some reason the sight of comet Lovejoy surviving a trip to within 88,000 miles of the sun's photosphere makes me happy.  Discovery says that it resisted temperatures of a million degrees.  No wonder it got out of there fast.

Possibly, of course, whoever was on it got Marvin the Paranoid Android to pilot it away while they teleported somewhere else.

Never mind Marvin. Raymond's got a brain the size of a small electromechanical abacus.

Meanwhile, Asteroid YU55 rattles around the Solar System like a pinball.

Hi Sis

Problem is that Lovejoy has probably been pulled into an orbit which will hit us on 21st Dec 2012!!!!!
