COMET follows scientists on the trail of the once-in-lifetime Comet ISON and explores our cultural obsession with these celestial visitors. Comets have fascinated even terrified US for thousands of years. Traditionally seen as harbingers of doom they can influence some people even to this day. For scientists though comets are a great opportunity. This year a particularly massive chunk of ice and rock is hurtling our way an object that will fascinate billions and should create the space show of the century. When Comet ISON races past US toward the sun it should develop a tail that will light up the skies brighter than a full moon. Then the comet will slingshot around the back of the sun and could emerge brighter than ever treating the entire northern hemisphere to an unforgettable sight. It could even be visible in daylight.
