X shaped object - are they sure ? :chin:

I doubt it, looks more like a round rock with something spurting out of it ( oooeer ).

Can't the boffins get a radar onto it and find out the exact shape and not guess :confused:

Pressure of Sunlight ???? :conf: Don't comet's tails always face away from the sun?

Oh come on peeps, Cowell been 'Sick' recently. Perhaps he was secretly in space creating a new X Factor logo from chemicals stolen from St Trinnians??

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

NASA say -

Explanation: What is this strange object? First discovered on ground based LINEAR images on January 6, the object appeared unusual enough to investigate further with the Hubble Space Telescope last week. Pictured above, what Hubble saw indicates that P/2010 A2 is unlike any object ever seen before. At first glance, the object appears to have the tail of a comet. Close inspection, however, shows a 140-meter nucleus offset from the tail center, very unusual structure near the nucleus, and no discernable gas in the tail. Knowing that the object orbits in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, a preliminary hypothesis that appears to explain all of the known clues is that P/2010 A2 is the debris left over from a recent collision between two small asteroids. If true, the collision likely occurred at over 15,000 kilometers per hour -- five times the speed of a rifle bullet -- and liberated energy in excess of a nuclear bomb. Pressure from sunlight would then spread out the debris into a trailing tail. Future study of P/2010 A2 may better indicate the nature of the progenitor collision and may help humanity better understand the early years of our Solar System, when many similar collisions occurred.

I guess the energy from photons hitting matter really does push the matter away somewhat. Amazing. Makes sense I guess
