Scientists reveal how icy comets can pass through the sun:
"Thousands of comets have been detected plunging into our solar system’s star
since the 1980s. And with the introduction of technology such as Nasa’s
sun-watching Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) satellite in 2010 that these
close encounters – like Comet Lovejoy’s graze with the Sun last year - have
been turned into one of the most exciting sights in astronomy."
