Ducky Comet (67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko)
« on: February 16, 2016, 03:54:08 PM »
To tune of Rubber Ducky as performed by Ernie on Sesame Street

Ducky Comet, you're the one,
as you came in towards the Sun,
Ducky Comet, Rosetta made rendezvous.
(boo do do dee do)

Ducky Comet, you're a blast,
as you warmed up, you outgassed,
Ducky Comet, we're learning a lot from you!
(do do do be do)

Sent Philae to go,
make his way to your surface.
Though you hid him he,
still served some of his purpose!
(we forgive you)

Ducky Comet, you're so fine,
you are two lobes that combined.
Ducky Comet, the models support this view.
(do de do be do)

Ducky Comet 'round the sun,
You have passed perihelion.
Ducky Comet, going back where you came from -
Fluffy Comet, we've learned a whole lot from -
Ducky Comet, we -
Ducky Comet, we really will miiiiss you!

(Ernie snicker)

Made this up some time ago, inspired by another commenter on Phil Plate's Bad Astronomy Blog on Slate.   Today's post was also on 67/P, so I tried to post in the comments section.  Unfortunately, Slate is using Livefyre (I call it MysFyre) which has been a disaster ever since Slate went to it.  I could not get the thing in without the lines becoming run together or double spaced.   So, to have a nicer copy saved for posterity (or until the next SGUF wipeout  :P ), I figured I post here too.

That is so cool, I just spent way too long following all of Phil's links about the comet. So cool.
