Green Comet has ‘pickle-shaped’ core!
This from SpaceWeather News:
COMET HARTLEY UPDATE: NASA’s Deep Impact (EPOXI) probe is closing in on Comet Hartley 2 for a daring flyby on Nov. 4. The small but active comet is full of surprises, with spinning jets, geysers of cyanide gas, and a strangely pickle-shaped core. Mission scientists expect to reveal first images from the flyby during a press conference on Thursday afternoon, around 4 pm EDT.

Hmmm…a ‘pickled-shaped’ core in a green comet? May I have a veggie sandwich with that please? ;p
