What exactly happened the scientists don’t know yet. To be completely destroyed or to be broken into pieces were two possibilities imagined before and each of them could be the real fact now. NASA solar physicist Alex Young appreciated that “the nucleus could have been gone a day or so ago”. “Maybe over the last couple of days it’s been breaking up”, he said.
The comet had rocks 4.5 billion years old, as a real “time capsule looking back at the birth of the solar system” said the astronomer Phil Plait, who runs the “Bad Astronomy” blog. If parts of the ISON comet will be identified in the future, this will be an interesting study for astronomers for the years to come.
