  1. Hi Allen,

    The above article states: “… a look at comet 67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko. It might be getting colder as it travels further and further from the Sun, but observations recorded by the Rosetta spacecraft report that it’s dust jets are still firing strong and steady.”

    This is incorrect: 67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko is currently travelling towards the sun and will have its closest approach on 13 August.

    I can’t believe you got this wrong with all the publicity now.

    • You’re right, Rob, I slipped up there. 67/P slipped off my radar quite some time ago, so I have not been paying attention, and I read the source article far too hastily. I have just corrected the article. Thanks for pointing that out.
