Comet Lovejoy travels through the Sun

Some very interesting things are taking place in space this week. The most recent is a comet that has plunged into the sun and survived to come out on the other side. The temperature in the corona of the sun can reach over 2 million degrees Fahrenheit so it was expected for the icy comet to simply disintegrate. NASA has taken some impressive video and there are some great links to follow.
