A transient comet survives after passing near the sun, partly divided


According to the British Daily Mail, researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, the fact that parts of its nuclei are left behind is very important as they can now study what was made of it.

The team says its core is intact and therefore its journey, which is believed to have started in the binary system of 60 Kruger, about 13 light-years away, will continue in the galaxy.

The new study, led by David Goet of the University of California, Los Angeles, found that signs of a complete disintegration of a Borisov near the sun were unlikely.

The scientists wrote in new research, “Our observations reveal that the bursting of the nucleus and its division into small parts that contain a small part of the total mass.

Also comets often separate when they reach this point near the star, as happened to the ATLAS comet, which was very visible from Earth before it separated.

This occurs when the ice turns into a gas, which speeds up the comet’s rotation and this causes it to break into pieces, although sometimes only parts of it are broken.

It looked like this had happened to Borisov, as in early March there was a cloud of 38.6 square miles of fine particles.
