Amazing video and pictures of a comet being "eaten" by the sun.

Now that is a fine bit of filming.

Pretty cool how the sun looks after itself.

If that same comet had hit Earth, we probably wouldn't be here any more!

The Russians are actually working on preventing asteroids from hitting the Earth right now (as unlikely as that is).

Just so they don't turn it into a homing pigeon.

I hope after it's meal the Sun doesn't belch it out back at us.

Yeah, they don't want anyone (or thing) beating them to the punch.

Better to find out how easy or difficult it actually is where there isn't an imminent threat.
