During our 11 minute plus discussion with Dr. Alan Hale, we talked about comets passing by Earth at this time, approaching Earth, the Sun and even Mars. We talked about what made Hale-Bopp such a special comet, the ORT Cloud, the possibility of Comet 2013 A1 actually hitting Mars in October of 2014 and what that might mean for our Mars exploration program with the rovers and orbiting satellites.  We also discussed PANSTARRS which is now leaving its Earth flyby, the approaching comet ISON, and much more.  Comet culture, lore, and mythology was also discussed.
