This post at one point says, "..... policy on drones, or what the agency calls "model aircraft." "
You know what? They've been model aircraft for over 50 years now. Why have we started calling them "drones"?
So call them what they are. Model aircraft. They are NOT drones. Knock it off. Seriously.
It states, "But as astronomers watched on the evening of 28 November, the brightly flaring Ison moved behind the Sun but never emerged."
That is wrong. ISON DID in fact emerge. Just not as a cohesive comet. What emerged was a "fan" of dust and debris.
It's not like ISON simply disappeared with no trace and no one saw it.
Is the era of ridiculous questions posed by dumb-asses over?
